    Just In My Own Back Yard

    I moved to my present house in suburban south London nearly 3 years ago. Since then I have found great pleasure in observing the wildlife that lives in the neighbourhood and visits my small back garden, most notably a wide variety of wild birds. I put out food for them and have...

    Podunk Critters

    If you love wildlife you should come to my house! I'm WAY out in the boonies on an old farm at the end of a dead-end road. The house and yard are too damn big for me to take care of, but I love this place because of all the wildlife on this little 10 acre farm that i call home...

    I believe this is a barred owl.

    .. think this is a female. She flew across my path as I was walking through the woods just before I went on vacation, and then perched on a tree branch, allowing me to snap and video her. What a gift!

    the Love of Watching Wildlife

    I drive for a living and love to see the wildlife here in Mississippi as I travel. I have seen a couple of Black Panthers that had been hit by a car or truck. It is sad that it happens, but you can't do a lot to prevent it from happening. The one animal that I love to see is...

    Magic In The African Bush

      When I was a youngster, we’d often go into the bush with my uncle who had a special license to help with culling in the Game Reserves. It was so amazing! We’d pack up the Land Rovers with all our camping gear, food, clothes, games and cards, and bush-stuff...

    She took the bird from him and held it like a precious package. She wrapped it in the blanket, talking to it, cooing, she was focused on it with all her attention. The bird was frightened but weak and struck at her gloved hands with a lack of enthusiasm that did not quite amount...

    It Is Hard To Raise Money For A Wildlife Charity.

    I Love Where I Come From Because Of That!

    I lived for the first twenty four years of my life on a s,aller Galapagos island in Ecuador. If I could describe the place in one word, I'd say it was magical. We lived close to the sea front, and frequently sea lions would come up and be barking and messing around. They would...

    From The Other Side

    I love heading to the woods

    and animal watching. I don't do it a ton, but when I do it's totally cool. You have to be patient and really quiet and still. But if you can be stealthy, it's so awesome. They just go along with their business and do their thing. It's just as fun as people watching. If I...

    For The Love Of Koalas

    Poor Squirrel

    I saw a squirrel standing still in the middle of the road. I swerved to the right to avoid him, he ran that way, I swerved the other way, and he ran the other way and my tire got him. Not a good feeling committing road kill, but sometimes you just cannot help it.
