Hungry Squirrel

As the snow fell yesterday morning, this little squirrel tried very hard to get at the suet in the cage feeder.

Perching Birds

Do you ever wonder how birds like these House Sparrows can sleep without losing their grasp on a branch or something else that must be gripped?
The feet of perching birds have a pair of tendons which are connected to the deep flexor muscles of the leg. When the bird lands and the ankle bends, both tendons automatically pull, clenching the toes closed. As long as the ankle is bent, the toes remain locked in place, giving the bird a sure grip even when sleeping.

A Couple of Colorful Creepy Crawlies

The milkweed bug feeds on milkweed seeds. Not a pest unless you’re raising milkweed as a crop!

Milkweed Bug

The box elder bug feeds almost exclusively on seeds of the acer family of trees. They do not damage the plant, but can become pests in the fall when, seeking warmth, they enter your house. (They’re all over our windows right now!)
