All kinds of birds come to get drinks of water from this pot and a birdbath in our yard. Sometimes squirrels come to drink water too. :) There has been a bad drought here in California. I hope it rains a lot this year.
I saw this fox while driving down the hill near my house. To get this picture I had to quickly roll down my back window. There was no time to get out of my car because he was running away. I hope to see him again sometime. :)
He was born at the nature center where I volunteer. This is him being crazy and pretending to attack me through the glass. Haha!
He is native to California unlike Red-Eared Sliders which are often kept as pets and when the owners decide they don’t want them for one reason or another, they are released into the wild where they take over Western Pond turtle habitats. Red-Ears are from southeastern US while Western Pond turtles are from the Northwest.
