Beautiful! Recognized the buntings. They are one of my favorite NA birds. I've yet to see a painted one in the wild, but now that I live in it's range I'll have to be more observant. I caught sight of an Indigo once, you can't miss that blue!

We see armadillos here too. Dead along the roads.

Why did the chicken cross the road?
To prove to the armadillo it could be done!

We loved our eastern bluebirds (being an Eastener) and several family members had bluebird boxes specifically designed for them to nest in. They are less and less common I believe though.

He was taking a swim in our pool today. I would say it's a tiny Texas Brown snake but you can see it has no patterning and it didn't act like our Texas Browns. I've encountered them before. They like to play like they are venomous and coil up and strike at you, fiesty buggars. This one was not aggressive. I'm no herp, so I'll have to do some digging to identify what it is. Talk about a moving subject though!

You have a pool?......When is the pool party?

We used to have a Boa, gave her away when we moved, she was passed 6 feet at that point.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Yep, H is half fish. Pool party time is a n y t i m e !!! Water is in the 90's. Come ooon doowwn! Just give us a heads up so we can clear out the snakes. Just kidding. They're fun to swim with.
My best friend had a boa when we were growing up. It was so cute. I remember always finding it in the bathtub. It wasn't very big though.

Here is a chipmunk that has been visiting us.

Not sure what kind it is. Apparently there is 6 kinds of chipmunk in Oregon, but only 1 or 2 that live on the south west side of the Metro area.

Thanks Die !

Hey, I heard ( I know I could just google it and have the answer before I hit reply ) flying squirrels live in Oregon......Ever seen one?


Ok, ever see one?.....I want to.





Northern flying squirrel

The northern flying squirrel (

Glaucomys

sabrinus

) is the most distinctive of all

Oregon’s squirrels, but because it is

nocturnal, it is seldom seen. Contrary to its

common name, this species doesn’t actually

fly, instead skin folds that extend from

foreleg to hind leg allow it to glide from tree

to tree. This adaptation requires the species

to live in heavily forested areas. They are

rarely found in open or fragmented habitats

or urban environments. West of the Cascades, flying squirrels have dark

brown fur; eastern varieties are lighter brown in color. The bulk of their

diet consists of fungi and lichens, but they also eat seeds, nuts, insects,

bird eggs and nestlings and conifer cones. Twelve inches or less in length,

they produce only a single litter each year.

Nope. I've never seen one, but supposedly they do live in Coos County and Douglas County, so going out and looking for them should be possible.

Looks like I'm going to Bandon again this year for 4th of July to visit with the Extended Family. Love that area.

Love it! You may have caught them when younger? That is a great find, Sakari.  Wonder why they hang out together?
