A couple of weeks ago, I asked you to send in photos of wildlife in your garden, and Pam Wittenberg from Santa Rosa, California, had a bunch to share! She says, “Here are some pics of the wildlife in our garden. We, too, get hawks feeding on the songbirds in our garden. There’s one pic of a hawk feasting up in a tree. They get very mad when we watch them too much and glare at us from the creek! I just hope they don’t grab any of the baby turkeys that visit our yard. I also included some more common visitors – a baby possum, a few proud turkeys, an orb weaver spider with his honeybee meal safely stored away, a recently molted cicada hanging out on a Tiarella blossom, and a teeny tiny snail in the late afternoon sun.” Thanks, Pam, for sharing your visitors with us!

    These photos are warmly welcomed! We have so much snow here in Kentucky. We are blessed with many birds at our feeders though.

    The pictures of the animals are really wonderful but even better are the bits of green in the pictures. Here in Indiana we are covered with much more snow than usual and much colder temperatures. Seems like spring will never get here again.

    Your photo is beautiful, Pam. We're high and dry in Denver and the only wildlife in our backyard are the devil squirrels that girdle our trees just for pure amusement!

    I am thrilled with the photos! My daughter is a Vet. and wildlife rehabber and I have shared my home with a few strange animals such as hawks, skunks, and rats(got to feed the ezgles something!) I watch bald eagles fly above our home every day and feel blessed!
