Blue Jay Party



Blue Jay Party



A Party of about 15 Blue Jays is ready for breakfast in the Backyard. My plan is to eventually hand feed all of them in one morning session. Did you know the name for a group of Blue Jays is not flock, but either party or band. Personally I like "Band of Blue Jays". Stay tuned for progress reports! The lighting is not good at this time of day when they all tend to gather - I will try some external lighting in future tries.

Pregnant Squirrel Craves Peanuts


Momma Squirrel is Pregnant and Craving Peanuts


Mother Gray Squirrel is very pregnant and has a serious shelled Peanut craving. She is the Matriarch of the squirrel family. Always my favorite squirrel to patiently hand feed I have to be careful because she wants her peanut now, and has little patience. She'll take her peanuts with or without my finger attached! She looks like she is due very soon and has made her nest deep in the thicket behind the Backyard. More squirrel kittens on the way!

Squirrels Love Suet - Eaten Upside Down or Right-Side Up!


Squirrels Love Suet - Eaten Upside Down or Right-Side Up!

Gray Squirrel spends the day pretty much hanging upside down eating suet meant for Woodpeckers in Florida. I have given up on suet in the Smoky Mountains due to constant bear activity in warmer weather. Here in Florida I try every year in winter as we have four species of woodpecker. So I need to raise the game a bit. Squirrels can hang upside down til the cows come home.

Little Furry Friends: Red Squirrel, Gray Squirrel, Chipmunk and Rabbit


Little Furry Friends Red Squirrel, Gray Squirrel, Chipmunk and Rabbit


Red Squirrel, Gray Squirrel, Chipmunk and Rabbit all dine together in a pouring rain and react to loud Thunder. The rabbit is the calm one. It is unusual for the three squirrel species of Backyard North to be hanging out together, must be the weather.

Screech Owls Return To The Nest Box


Screech Owls Return To The Nest Box

Annual Screech Owl nesting season has begun rather unexpectedly December 10th 2017. Mother Screech Owl has claimed one of the "Squirrel Condos" that I put up just two days ago - the ladder is still there. Once nesting season has begun all tree trimming and pest control spraying etc stops in the Backyard.

Red Shouldered Hawks Calling


Red Shouldered Hawks Calling

Three Red Shouldered Hawks are having a calling contest high in the Pines behind the Backyard! One is nearby and one is in the distance - their calls travel a long way. Its the start of mating season and they are staking out territory. After a few minutes he moves on to another tree and calls and calls while flying overhead - this goes on at various times throughout the day. All of this hawk calling has the resident squirrels on edge. I keep hoping that the hawks will make a nest in the trees right behind the Backyard but they tend to prefer dense oak trees for nests rather than exposed high pines.

Squirrels Feast on Ripe Palmetto Palm Berries


Squirrels Feast on Ripe Palmetto Palm Berries

Palmetto Palm fruit is ripe and its party time for squirrels during the day and Raccoons at night. Gray Squirrels are not known for moderation - their goal is to cram as many of these berries down their throat as fast as they can. As for Raccoons, judging by their droppings it doesn't look like the berries are digested much so I don't know how much nutrition they get out of them - I'll spare you that video!
