Where The Wild Things Live

"Who?"
That's what my husband sent me on a text the other morning while he was out walking. With that text was a photo.

He noticed Mr. Owl asleep in the tree. He slowly focused his iphone camera in to get a shot. Sucess. Then as he stepped backed, his foot hit a limb. The limb cracked and Mr. Owl woke up and gave him the ole stink eye look. Nick continued his walk.


I sent this picture to two of my neighbors who both in return said they had seen him around too. Hes big an beautiful. Its exciting to see wild life living in my neck of the woods since we have very little woods at all. 

We live in a neighborhood within the city limits. We are aproximately three miles from center town.
We have seen some animals that seem out of place here.



There used to be a fox that played in my back yard every day sun up or sun down. Not sure what happend to him. We have seen many snakes as well. 

My neighbor spotted a wild turkey on the hood of her car one day and I seen a family of deer walking in the yard across the street.  Its amazing what you can see when your always peering out of the windows. 

Any who, Ill end with this video. I mean really, Who wouldnt want to see an owl ride a pony?

  1. An owl? And a fox cub? What a privilege.
    I am not big on snakes though.

  2. I do love to see most wild life, even snakes (If I see them before I am too close,lol) It is unique to see a huge owl like that. Nick was cute with the 'who?' question. LOL
    Yeah, I liked the owl on the pony! ;-)

  5. We have heard a few owls over the years, but never actually seen them. You are super lucky. The only friends we regularly see are chipmunks and squirrels. Not so interesting...but cute! ;)

  7. Cute video! I'm not surprised that you've seen deer and snakes...the fox surprised me, though. We see all kinds of animals, but we have lots of woods around the lake. Saw a skunk on my patio not too long ago. Ack!!

  8. Civilization has chased the wildlife away from the suburbs and those homeless cratures keep looking for home. That fox is cute. We have an owl here that visits for a little while each summer too.

    1. You are right about that. We have a creek and a spot of woods. Wonder what else in in there.

  9. We see wild things here on the farm all the time but we're 11 miles from the closest small town.
    I've tried to get pictures of owls in the past without success. You're hubby did good.
