Day 123 of 2021

Just when our nest becomes empty another mama comes to our yard. 
I have counted and recounted 
and keep coming up with eleven babies she is hauling around. 
She circled the deck twice but I don't think she is staying. 
I saw her disappear under the rear fence.
This is the craziest thing I've seen since I don't know when.

  5. Good to have in the neighborhood; one of the things they eat is ticks.

  6. Mama's just looking around as if there's nothing unusual at all. Kinda like a furry cluster of grey grapes. Hope no one falls off!

  7. Wow, now this photo really makes me smile - seems like you were there with your camera at the right time - great shot!! Is this an Opossum? If so, quite different to our 'possum', and obviously not a pest like ours are.
