Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Wildlife

Here is just a sample of the wildlife that we see from our window here in the NW suburbs of Chicago.  Not included are the deer that on the rare occasion take a stroll down our road, the skunk that lives under our front doorstep, coyotes that sometimes trot past the house after a night of hunting small animals, the many different varieties of birds that we see on a daily basis and an eight-legged possum, reported by my father, that turned out to be two of these creatures following very closely one after the other.

The term ‘wildlife‘ would seem to be something of a misnomer as all these creatures appear to have made themselves quite at home in our backyard.

  1. I have three squirrels that visit every day. It is so much fun to watch them. It is amazing how much “wildlife” we have in our neighborhoods. Great photos 🙂

    • Thanks, Laura! The squirrels are very entertaining and it’s interesting to see their thought process as they work out problems like how to get at the bird seed. I usually make it easy for them and throw some on the ground so they’ll leave the feeders alone.

    • Yes, the rabbit and I have a love/hate relationship. He loves to snack on my garden flowers but as much as I hate to see him nibbling on my prize lilies I would miss him if he wasn’t around so I let him get away with it up to a certain point.
