Burrow Life!

A Year Just Outside the Burrow!  
Just a tiny little taste of life here.

It's been 10 months since we moved into our new place.  Not a day goes by that I don't find myself saying, "I LOVE this place!"  My attention is easily captured by all the life around me.  I enjoy every bit of it!  One day, during the kitchen remodeling I was bored.  I couldn't do anything, but I needed to be near by.  I sat with a notebook, binoculars and my bird identification books and computer for two hours and counted the birds.  There were 17 different kinds who were at my feeders out back!  The sounds of the birds chirping, even at 5:30 am, is a wonderful reminder that life is happening.  

The photos in the above video were taken mostly by me, but also by my daughter and my son.  I love the fact that my children are willing to document the wildlife around our place for me too.  Any "Hey Mom, check this out!" causes me to put down what ever I am doing and go see what's up.  

Animals not included, but spotted, in this video include most bird varieties, opossum, raccoon, deer, and fox.  I'm sure there are more, that's just all I can think of right now.  

When I was a little girl I always dreamed of being an Astronaut, a Forest Ranger and a Mom.  I still love the stars and all the nature/wildlife around me.  

Hope you enjoy this little taste of life just outside the Burrow walls!

That was a fun little journey. You have an array of snakes. I would most definately let the cats out very often to scare them off. Call in the Hawk as well. I would have a very difficult time sitting still long enough to take the pictures.

We just moved into our new place less than a week ago. I hope that in 10 months I am saying how much I love my place still. I have a feeling that I will. thanks for stopping by my blog during the SMS giveaway!

I'm not so fond of snakes, but you make them seem OK! :-) I'm enjoying your videos. I hope you are feeling well!
