wildlife in the smith backyard


some would say that i am becoming my grandmother. we have a squirrel who frequents our bird feeders who we have named scout. every morning brady looks out the back window and informs me when scout has arrived. we have all kinds of birds as well. they must like our digs because one bird laid a nest in the arm of our satellite dish and started a little family. this weekend this little guy fell out. brian and i did not know what to do so we turned to the internet and found that eventually the birds out grow their nest and even though the cannot fly if left alone their mama will return and feed them even if they are no longer in the nest. after a few pics, because he was so darn cute, we left him alone. i have not seen or heard of him since.
