Wildlife Seen This Week

I found this Eastern Fox Squirrel feeding on the fruit of the Osage Orange tree earlier this week...



In the same vicinity, a Red-bellied Woodpecker was squabbling with a Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker...


The sapsucker finally yielded to its' larger opponent...


A solitary Raven was perched in a different part of the county...


A male Cardinal added a festive splash of color to the landscape...


These Black Vultures were taking a break from devouring the carcass of a road-killed deer.  Once again demonstrating that nothing goes to waste in nature...



Thanks for visiting, and come back soon.
