Bob said he saw a quail and a bunny and I saw a bunch of vultures circling. [No, they were not coming for me. They always circle when Bob mows as I think more than a few field mice bite the biscuit every time.]
We have also seen deer, racoon, squirrels, skinks, 2 garden snakes [I hate snakes!], hawks and one very large owl during our ownership of the farm.
We have not seen any coyotes, but I know they are out there someplace.
I think most folks think of the Bluegrass area as horses, tobacco and farm fence--and there are a lot of those.
But we do have a very diverse wildlife here too and I love that aspect of it. I love that Scrappy can scare up turkeys and not just robins. I love the millions of butterflys that flutter around and the goldfinches that inhabit our thistle infested fields.
|Skink--I know they are pretty ugly, but they are kind of cool looking too, with their florescent blue tails. I think only the young ones are so bright.|
