More Young Ones

In an update of my previous post, the 2 little mourning doves did not live.  It’s possible that they were already dead when I photographed them – it was hard to tell.  But later on there was no movement, and the parents seemed to abandon the nest, so I eventually climbed up and cleaned out the gutter.

Other denizens are thriving, though.  We knew that there was a groundhog living underneath our shed, but just this past weekend, I spotted some smaller ones with it:

gh2

gh3

gh4

gh5

I also spotted a little baby rabbit last night, but didn’t have a camera handy before it hopped away.  Of course, the downside to these little ones being around is that there are that many more mouths that might chomp on our flowers and vegetables.  We have to be vigilant…

  2. Sorry to hear about the chicks. Baby groundhogs, though… that’s a first for me. And, you know, you’re providing them w/quite the gourmet diet!

  3. Little fuzzy bulgy foreheads!

    Ah yes, they WILL eat your veggies if you aren’t careful.

  4. Those are so friggin’ adorable. Why haven’t we destroyed their ecosystem yet and domesticated them into pets?
