Megan and I are constantly fending off wild creatures. A racoon here, feral cat there, you get the picture. But sometimes I am just amazed at how many wild mammals live near us. Tonight, after arriving home from work, I spotted four squirrel species right from my couch and I managed to photograph three of them. In addition, American Crows were feeding in the street, and they constantly would fend off pigeons and blue-jays who attempted to steal food from them. Watching them was fascinating, as they strut around the street like they own the place.
First, an Eastern Chipmunk, then a questioning squirrel, next, a cartoon-cute juvenile ground hog, and finally, a clever crow.
