The closest stop sign is over a mile away and the first traffic light is 5+ miles down the road. A visit to the grocery store is almost 30 miles round trip. It's quiet here; just the sound of toads and coyotes at night. It seems very still, but when you look close there's always something happening. Read on about a few things we've noticed over the past few years.

new outdoor cam

My husband received an outdoor camera for Christmas
that takes a picture when it detects movement. 
He mounted it on one of our trees and within 5 minutes we had our first wildlife picture.  
Hello there Mr Coyote.

another victim

My dog won't tolerate any vermin in the yard, including squirrels. 
This one was killed and left for me to clean up later.  Thanks Toby.

Red winged blackbird

I've spotted lots of these birds recently.  Many of them roost together near marshes and grassy areas.

The poppies are back

I snapped a picture of this perfect little beauty just a foot off the side of the drive-way.
