These beautiful Mississippi Kites visit my friends backyard every summer for mating season. They are small birds of prey and are a hawk. Love their black-grey color combination. Very beautiful bird. I have never seen one. Only sparrows, mockingbirds and cowbirds seem to park themselves at the farm! Thanks to E.S. for these amazing photos for […]
Our city friend has company again. Last month they had a beautiful bobcat who visited their backyard and pool. Last weekend this group came to hang around their pool.

I love having strange and unusual neighbors. It makes for a fun neighborhood! This cutie does not live too far down the lane. As with some of my unique “neighbors”, my cowboy will not let me have one of these either. It’s OK. I would be scared to death that the coyotes would finish him […]
