I was sitting at my desk, just getting ready to post on birds of the far southern hemisphere, when I looked up and there walked Big-Bob! (All new critters at The Holler get names.) So instead of birds from the far south, you’re gonna get critter action from the Holler’s wild-west.
Of course Big-Bob, a great egret, doesn’t belong here. He belongs at the lake, but this is one of the many things I love about birds, they don’t follow human directions, and they pay no attention to where ornithologists say they should be.
Anyhoo, I grabbed my camera and followed Big-Bob. He was on a mission and unfortunately lizards were on the menu. Meet Fred.
Fred knows us. He is a very large, very old alligator lizard, but he got much smaller when Meep-Meep, the roadrunner, relieved him of his tail, which he is diligently trying to grow back, and resting a lot accordingly. He is also molting which makes everything worse, poor Fred.
Fred is now understandably wary of all large birds. He took one look at Big-Bob and bolted to safety. It was a good day for Fred and Big-Bob, but a not a good day at all for poor Little Lizzy!
You may see Flash the hummer in this photo flying close to observe the predator-prey interaction. Flash lives with us year round and some of you may remember Flash. I have lots of talks with him about staying away from large predator birds like Meep-meep and Big-Bob who like to eat hummers, but as I mentioned before, birds don’t listen to humans, so you can see Flash buzzing Big-Bob like nobody’s business.
So, instead of cheers to you from the birds of the far south,
it’s cheers to you from the hungry Holler’s wild-west-critters~

I love The Holler. I looked up from my desk to see Big-Bob saunter by!
Bib Bob and Fred are handsome fellows. Poor Little Lizzie did not have a good day!
No she didn’t, poor Lizzie. We have lots and lots of Lizzie’s at The Holler.
I feel sorry for Fred. He ain’t the prettiest of all now but his new tail is doing okay. 🙂
He is the biggest alligator lizard I have ever seen. He never lost his tail. When I first saw him I wasn’t sure what he was and I grew up with alligator lizards. He is really not feeling well poor guy and I feel sorry for him too, but he seems to be recovering.
WOW!! What amazing photos! And I feel so sad for Little Lizzy!! Big Bad Bob, that’s his new name! LOL
Big-Bad- Bob! That is definitely his name!!! <3
No matter where you go, even if you stay home, you send us great postcards!
Ahhhh, so nice & so appreciated!
What an exciting adventure for Big-Bob. But I’m aFred it’s a bad day for Little Lizzy though. Anyway, I think Big-Bob has no egret about it. ヾ(*Őฺ∀Őฺ*)ﾉ
Cracking up…….You are hilarious!
Wow, so cool.
Thank you. Pretty amazing Big Birdie!
Cindy, you sure can tell amazing stories with great pictures and a few words! 🙂
Ahhh, I have such nice friends!
These are animals we don’t see in our part of the country, so it’s fascinating – exotic – wonderful to see these birds and other creatures. Sorry about the one who got eaten, but egrets have to eat too.
Egrets do need to eat and this very big guy looked very skinny. I think he may hang around here. We have so many Little Lizzies!
I suppose we would be overrun by the lizards if it wasn’t for egrets and such birds.
Oh dear, poor Little Lizzy! I don’t even like lizards, but I was rooting for her. Great shots!
I loved lizards when I was a little kid until an alligator lizard bit down on my index finger and wouldn’t let go. I ran all the way home with it hanging from my finger. My mother went through all sorts of contortions to get it off. They have a hook on their palate and when they bite down they lock. Now I like them again, but I am not quite dumb enough (yet) to stick my finger in front of one!
Oh wow, I would have freaked out! Both as the child and the mother, I think. 😄
My mother is a cool character to this day. First she used popsicle sticks and when they broke, spoons. It did freak me out though. I wanted it off! But years later, I helped my son and his friends catch alligator lizards so we could raise them for awhile. I didn’t put my fingers or theirs, in reach of the jaws though….
Poor Lizzy! How awful. Gorgeous photographs, as always. Beautiful. I hope Fred is safe.
The saddest thing about Fred it that he is rare because he is old and he never lost his tail. He was huge and at first scary until I figured him out. Now he is a bit stumpy and under the weather, but I see him around and I think he will make it, as long as Meep-Meep minds her manners!
Loved seeing Big Bob. He’s quite the sight. What a majestic looking fellow! Tall and lean and knows what he wants. 🙂
This is the second time at The Holler that I have looked out the window and seen a huge bird that doesn’t belong here. The last time it was a great blue heron and my first thought when I saw it was, “there’s a dinosaur at my door! Laughing…..I love having them here.
A dinosaur, Ha ha! Unexpected visitors can add a bit of spice to the flow of moments. 🙂
I even think the lizard is beautiful, but he needs his tail!
I love reading about your bird (and lizard) visitors. 🙂
Ahhh, makes me so happy you do & thank you! <3
Fancy having wildlife (literally) on your doorstep. They must feel very safe and secure in getting so close to you. Took me a while to see the little Hummer in the 6th image – they are so tiny.
The hummers are so tiny and great egrets are so big! The hummers are just ridiculously bold. They always buzz close to look at predators, including praying mantis which like to eat them.
The picture of Big-Bob and Flash is astounding!
Thank you! Big-Bob has quite the neck and the beak doesn’t he. He can sink his head way under water and stab a fish with his army combat knife beak! I am impressed. I hear if you annoy them, they aim for the eyes, so I have no intention of annoying him.
Eek! Such a regal looking bird! But give me a choice – I shall still go for the Pan-American wondrous hummingbird!
Cool as a cucumber… just sauntering by. 😉 I love the green tones around Big-Bob’s eye. What amazing wildlife you have there at the Holler. Lucky you (and us)!
I feel just the same about where you live. I love seeing the tracks in the snow, and would love to be there…….
We’re getting 6-10″ tomorrow, tracking ought to be good on Thurs. and Fri. I’ll set the snowshoes out and put the kettle on. 😉
I love snowshoeing, and someday I hope I can join you. If I saw mink tracks, I would be beyond thrilled!
The other day I saw a whole story on my hike. Chipmunk, mouse, then weasel searching the stone wall for the same. Even a fisher cat (larger weasel) hunting porcupine. Deer, rabbit, squirrel always. Opossum in the back yard checking below the feeders. Snow makes tracking so easy. Hope you make it out here some day- you’re always welcome!
I loved your narration ☺ and pic are amazing..!
Ahhh, I am honored and so happy you enjoyed.
Flash is so brave 😄
Flash is ridiculously brave and very fast. He is dominating the feeder again as the first new spring arrivals are starting to trickle in….I’ll have to set up a distant feeder he can’t dominate soon.
I m amazed that the egret let you come that close unless you used one those fancy zoom lenses. Great story with a fine set of photos!
He had lizards on his mind. He saw me, but I was not his central preoccupation. I hope he hangs around….
I love this !
I am so very pleased you do and thank you for telling me!
Big Bob would love it here…we have lizards everywhere although our biggest one Big Daddy may well give him a run for his money…Great pictures Cindy 🙂 x
If you’ve got lizards, you’ve got snakes, and the birds that eat them both. Ain’t life great!!! 😉
Oh yes, indeed we do Cindy… and rats… That’s without the spiders and ants…Life sure is great in rural Thailand 😉
Life is beautiful<3
The green eyes of the bird are truly a majestic capture. 🙂
Beautiful captures.🙂 A visual treat as always.
Ahhh, so nice, and so appreciated.
I once saw a great blue heron hunting rodents in the same way that Bob was hunting lizards. I’d never heard of a heron or egret stalking prey on land before, so I asked my boss (who was a naturalist) if the heron was “alright.” Putting too much faith in textbooks can make one ignorant!
Well, don’t feel bad, a Great Blue Heron showed up here about five years ago, and stayed for days. I was so worried about it because I had no way to give it water, although I tried everything, and was sure it needed it. I called animal rescue and had it “rescued,” and right before the rescue people showed up, it caught about three lizards in a row. It was a smart bird, came to The Holler on vacation to get away from all that dreary water, and eat something besides fish for a change! I was the one that was sorta clueless. Plus, another amazing thing I saw as the rescue woman grabbed the GBH by the beak, was that two roadrunners forgot about running, and just came up to gawk at the whole enterprise. Live and learn. Now I know for sure that wild animals are much smarter than humans
Oh no, that poor heron! Live and learn I guess. It does seem quite unusual to see a heron so far from water, unless you happen to have a naturalist for a boss.
For all he’s a bit predatory Cindy, Big Bob is certainly a handsome chap.
xxx Huge Hugs xxx
He is gorgeous isn’t he!
I love your story about Big Bob and Fred. Thank you!
Oh, thank you so much more for liking them & cheers to you!
Big-Bob is beautiful! 🙂
Yep. Simply amazing, like living dinosaur.
Wow. You get wonderful visitors.
Yes. I do. They never cease to amaze me.
A wonderful drama with a wonderful ending for most of the actors!
Thank you and very pleased you enjoyed!
Lucky Fred was eaten form the back not the front, so he can regrow the tail. The egret is one amazing big bird. He might come more often to your restaurant.
I hope he does! I was thrilled with his visit. Cheers to you my friend <3
I love it too. Big-Bob is amazing! Thanks for sharing.
Thank you. Big-Bob is one handsome birdie!
Thanks for letting us share these exciting moments with your brilliant photos. I have blackbird dramas going on outside my window this moment – but have neither the skills nor the camera to capture them (and it is dull and raining).
Observing wildlife is endlessly fascinating and it teaches us so much about human life too! Cheers to you Hilary & thank you too~
What a wonderful tale! Less so for the lizard of course. Great photos 😊
Thank you and so pleased you enjoyed!
Great story and nice photos Cindy.
So kind & so appreciated!
Wow, simply fantastic! Thank you for sharing this!
Thank you more for such a kind comment and cheers to you!
Great story. What a majestic looking bird.
He is quite the looker isn’t he!
You are so lucky, living among all these critters – and the photo stories you share bring joy and smiles to my day!
You just brought joy & smiles to my morning. Thank you Leya & cheers too <3
So pleased you enjoyed and thank you for taking the time to tell me. Love your new kitchen btw~
These are long-legged interesting birds, your shot is awesome Cindy. 🙂
Big-Bob has an amazingly long neck and legs. Makes him quite adept at fishing! Be well dear Ranu <3

Lovely pictures of critters from the Holler taken by Cindy Knoke.
Hugs, gratitude & happy Wednesday to you Patricia <3
Wonderful observations and very cool photo of the hummer with the heron!
Thank you! Hummers are fearless little creatures.
Great photos, as always. I did see Flash before I read that he was there. I did a double take – that can’t be a hummer interfering there, can it? Critters (and birds) are so unpredictable.
They are fascinating. Hummers are remarkable curious and brave. Any unusual animal, or person for that matter, that visits The Holler will receive a very close inspection by them. They seem inordinately fascinated by predators, but I have only seen them caught once in ten years.
Sehr schöne Aufnahmen Cindy vom Silberreiher. Danke fürs zeigen.
Laughing! Was für ein wunderbarer Kommentar und ich liebe meinen neuen Namen.
Cindy vom Silberreiher! <3 <3
OMG… What a fun post, Cindy. You have such amazing visitors (and residents). Amazing photo captures. Hugs on the wing!
Hugs flying back to you Teagan and best wishes too <3
Your posts are getting more and more fun Cindy. I love the names and fun backstories for your holler critters. I like the name Flash and his spunk to bomb Big Bob! Go Flash! 🙂 Would an egret really eat a hummer?
Heck yes the egret will eat a hummingbird, if he is fast enough to catch one. The roadrunner likes to stand near hummers and make attempts to catch them. I have only seen him succeed once, thankfully, and he crowed around in front of me with the hummer in his beak like a house cat with a mouse!
Wow! Thanks for the biology lesson. 🙂
It’s kinda like Holler bio huh???? It certainly was for me when I first moved here. I used to dream about being bitten by rattlesnakes, chased by coyotes, gored by bulls, and bit by black widows. Now I realize it was a lot better than my last job! 😉 😉
Cindy, these images are amazing. Just awesome.
When I grow up, I want to take pictures like you do!
Awww, your kind words make my <3 smile! Thank you Sheila~
Love the action, Cindy! Some are wise and fortunate, while others…not so much.
Fortune favors the wise, at least some of the time. The rest of the time is just a matter of luck!
What an interesting post. Did I ever knew an alligator could regrow his tail? Hmm…
I don’t think an actual alligator can, but an alligator lizard definitely can. Score one for the lizards! <3
Great story Cindy. You give them a personality.
They definitely have personalities, but I do give them names without consulting them! 😉
and it seems so fitting…
Growing up we lived on a hill above a huge forest that was, thankfully, marked as indigenous land (until it recently half of it went for a hefty price and turned into more housing in an already saturated area). There were all sorts of birds and small creatures living in there. My Mom kept saying that there was a blue heron which would fly over our house and down into the forest. Everyone told her she was crazy because they don’t come up this far north. But for a few years, there was actually a family of them that would spend the warmer months gracing our little part of the world. So, yes, they do not listen to what silly humans think should be the norm! I love all your creatures, but poor little Lizzie. 🙁
Oh how wonderful! What a excellent environment for a child to grow up in. It sounds so much like The Holler. We live next to a nature reserve and are surrounded by open space. It is a wonderful way to live and I could never go back to an urban life. I love that your mom was right about the herons and that groups of them came to stay. Smart mom and smart birds!
What a wonderful interaction (except for poor Lizzie). Big Bob is such an unusual looking bird. That neck is so long! Great photos, Cindy.
I imagine he uses his neck like a speargun underwater ready to stab with that rapier beak. He would be formidable to a fish!
Nature at it’s best. We eat and we get eaten. 🙂
Yes. Keeps our relative lack of importance in perspective.
Fabulous photos and post Cindy! Big Bob is quite a guy. 💛
Thank you Val. He is Big Beautiful Bob! <3
Nature can seem cruel to us humans, but how else are critters gonna eat unless they catch their dinner? Great photo story, Cindy! I love the hummer — brave little spirit!
Nature doesn’t seem that cruel to me compared to humans. Little Lizzy may have a different opinion though…..
Brilliant photograph of Big Bob, Lizzie, and the hummer Flash!
Thank you and I am so pleased you enjoyed and took the time to tell me <3
Hope all is well with you two. I imagine you are either on the move or just about to move……
New post coming up today or tomorrow with all the latest news 🙂 xox
Big Bob is beautiful! I love the variety you get.
Big Bob was a capital V for variety! 😉 Thrilled me to no end. Of course Lizzy has a wildly different opinion.
I bet she does!
I love egrets and we get some across the street in the old lemon grove from time to time. Big Bob is so appropriately named.
I love to watch them walk on land in slo-mo, lifting their feet up so high as if they walking through a foot of water. We live amidst citrus groves too. Maybe they like them!
Wildlife entertainment in your own backyard!
The best entertainment there is for me. Forget Hollywood. Bring on the wildlife!
That is awesome to have Mr. Big-Bob walked right in front of your door. Poor Mr. Fred. I hope he has his new tail grow back fully.
Very nice pictures of these animal friends.
Fred is not happy. I wouldn’t be either if I were him. He had such a long and amazing tail!
What a captivating narration. I chuckled at their names but I’m not sure that I wouldn’t run 5 miles in the opposite direction from Fred.
There is this primal human aversion to reptiles. Maybe it kept us alive in the very olden history. Now I am much more averse towards people like president trump.
That is fantastic indeed…the images are charming and ur way of telling and commenting on them is so exciting..
How lovely of you to say! Makes me smile. Thank you & cheers to you~
Yes, quite elegant really~
This one is looking fragile but really elegant!
I’m convinced that birds are major league gossips, and word gets around about good places to hang out. How long does it take for word to get around a feeder’s been refilled? Big Bob must have listened in on the grapevine.
I agree with you 100%!
Amazing !!!!! Just superb pics👌
You are very kind & most appreciated <3

Beautiful photos, Cindy <3
Thanks Amy, beautiful birds make nice pics!
Wow! How wonderful to see an egret right at home 🙂 Your bird photos are always captivating. Lovely details!
I am very pleased you enjoyed them & have a wonderful weekend <3
Thank you , you have a wonderful weekend as well Cindy <3
Great shots, poor Lizzy!
Yes, poor Lizzy. Such is life….. <3
Big Bob is quite a character! So is Flash! So you are “home in the Holler.” How far did your great southern expedition get this time? Did you make it to Antarctica? I know you have many more wonderful sights to show us; in our minds some of us are still in Patagonia! Thanks for the shared adventures!
Isn’t it the most wonderful thing to travel in your imagination! I do it all the time. It is excellent for your mental health and blood pressure. We didn’t cross the Drake Passage this time. The weather was not cooperative. Still it is always in my mind to go back to Antarctica. Our first time was so amazing though, I almost hate to ruin the perfect memories.
Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
Cindy Knoke is back a the Holler catching up with the residents. There is danger afoot for short tailed lizards and their friends as Big-Bob hunts for breakfast and their only protection is a tiny hummingbird called flash who is brave enough to take on the gigantic predator… this would make a great movie.. Big-Bob and the Hummer. Fabulous photos as always from Cindy. Please head over and dive into her archives… take supplies you will be there for a while.
I wish you wrote my descriptors. You make it sound so exciting, whilst accurately describing everything that happened. What talent! Hugs to you sweet Sally & have an awesome weekend <3 <3
I felt I was there and I did feel so proud of that fearless hummer.. thanks again Cindy for an incredible set of images. ♥♥

How entertaining!! You’ve got a gift for sure! For some reason this story reminded me of Mark Twain 😊💜
So kind. Thank you! Mark Twain is one of a kind, and I adore him, so even the mention of his name is huge honor. I love what he said about corvids and congressmen, check it out:
Haha that was great. Yes unfortunately for us the similarities are there. And I missed where I started his quote and for the first few sentences or so I thought it was still you 😉 thank you for sharing!
“unfortunately for us the similarities are there.” Yes. Exactly! 💜
Oh, boy, I love it! You have a whole world going on there 🙂
I love all the characters! It’s like a play that never ends. 💜
you always have such entertaining stories to tell Cindy!
Muchas gracias mi amigo!
Oh, poor Lizzy.
Fred reminds me of the many squiggly tails loking for their owners when I was a young kid in tropical Philippines. Young me was quite amused that the tails could move on their own. This adult me, however, is glad that Fred can grow back a new tail. 😁
Yes! I have seen the same thing. It is like they have a life of their own, searching for their owners!
EGADS!!!! Or I suppose I should say EGRETS!!!!
🎵🎵 Chain , chain, chain of food 🎵🎵 sung to the tune of “Chain of Fools” 😀
I am singing it now…… Love you Aretha!
But just switched to Cocker:
“Unchain my my heart, food chain, let me be,
Unchain my heart, baby let me be
Cause you don’t care, help me, set me free….”
I can feel LIttle Lizzy singing along.
Do you think they’ll check us in to the same ward??????
I hope so.
We will have so much fun!
And we will pep the place up to no end!
LOL!!! Not sure which ward is which, but I’ll lead an escape and meet you at the most center point art gallery.
No doubt we will have an electrical banana time! <3
Big -Bob dose look a bit out of place but he seem to being liking it pretty well 🙂 Nice set Cindy!
He was a tad tentative which is hard to be when you are as big as Bob!
It’s amazingly well shot pics!! Loved the deep clarity! You take really nice pics!! And the story you spun around these was 👍!! Sad about lizzie though! Food chain!!
Thank you for such such thoughtful and considerate comments. They are much appreciated, and so are you! Have a wonderful week~
I love this, Cindy! Your story is terrific and so are the photos. Welcome home!
Thank you Patti and I am very happy you enjoyed! Hope you have a excellent week my friend <3
You too, Cindy. Have many photo moments. 🙂
I will try, and thank so very much for wanting me too.
alles Gute für die Woche wünsche ich dir, Klaus
wunderschön, liebe Cindy, alles Gute für die Woche, Klaus
Danke mein lieber Freund Klaus und ich hoffe du hast auch eine schöne Woche, mein Freund!
wow, Big Bob is big these are amazing pics. xxx
Thank you very much much and yes he was not only a big boy, he had a very big appetite too!
lol he is amazing.
Your photos fill me with delight. Thank you.
Your comment did the same for me. Thank you too!
Cindy, these are great. They must provide ongoing entertainment and smiles.
Thank you Sally! The spring migration is officially on at The Holler. The hummers are here in large numbers now and both The Orchard and Hooded Orioles have arrived. This is the best time of year here!!
I love your place and the beautiful, and hungry birds you have stalking around.
It is best now that spring is on it’s way. The orioles and the hummers are starting to arrive in numbers now! Do you have another blog that I am somehow missing?
I have a new blog retiredfromgypsylife.wordpress.com that I has been going since approx January this year. It is mainly about my life back home.
I will head over to it now.
Look forward to your visit
I found it and do not understand why your new blog isn’t showing in my reader since I follow both your blogs.
WP can sometimes be quite frustrating hope you can sort it out ok
I have given up on frustration! 😉 😉

Big Bob is a beautiful egret. Our last house was on a lake and we had a family of egrets in residence. It was fascinating to watch the stealth with which they captured their dinner.
Yes! They move in slow-mo. I have a blogger friend who feeds them from his kitchen. I probably wouldn’t do this unless they were injured.
I’ve never seen a bird like Big Bob, great photo’s Cindy.
He definitely commanded my full attention when he high stepped by my window! Hope all is well with you Charlotte <3
Amazing that you caught all this with your camera Cindy! Was he right there by your door?? Crazy!
He was and he let me follow him too, for a little while at least!
Wow, very nice pictures catching.
Glad you enjoyed & thank you for taking the time to tell me! Have a wonderful weekend.
Thank you, Cindy. You too…
Love to you.
Your photos are AMAZING!
So are you.
Life is such <3
Great storyline Cindy. How tall is Big Bob? Oh, and I love this bit: “He belongs at the lake, but this is one of the many things I love about birds, they don’t follow human directions, and they pay no attention to where ornithologists say they should be.” We can learn a great deal from the animal kingdom.
Thank you Steph. We certainly could learn oodles from animals, but first we would have to admit this! Great Egrets stand up to a meter tall. They are big birds!
Wow that is tall. The first time I heard of an Egret was in doing crossword puzzles about a gazillion years ago. I picked up so many little tidbits from these brain teasers.
I bet you do. People who do crosswords are smart.
Great and interesting pictures but the question is……. where do you find these freaking birds?
You travel alot, and the other question, can I go with you in one of your travels? I promise I won’t compromise things, I just sit dow with a bear and a cigarette and take selfies with them.
love ya, had been time since I didn’t saw nature through your blog
I think you would get along really well with the bears and it would be awesome to have you along! Cheers to you & hope you are doing well my friend~
So now you want a bear to eat me…….
He won’t eat you unless you pick an argument with him, which I definitely would advise against since bears are adept at nipping arguments in the bud!
What you talking about……. I’m worst than a bear, I’ a tiger!

Coucou du matin ou du soir CINDY
J’ai traversé toute la ville
pour aller à la boulangerie chercher des croissants
Et les partager avec toi avec un petit café
Et sur tes joues te dire bonjour ou bonsoir
mon Amie (i) si précieux
A la fraîcheur du matin
J’ai entendu le chant des oiseaux
J’ai vu le soleil qui se lever
je t’envoie un grand bonjour plus chaud que le soleil ,
plus clair que la lune, plus beau que le jour
A la fraicheur de la nuit je me suis dis que tu étais encore la ALORS
Qu’il fais bon te dire et te souhaiter une bonne journée ou soirée
Merci beaucoup mon ami Bernard et passez une merveilleuse semaine!
It is so amazing to see your photography.:)
So wonderful!I Thank you. I am happy you like the photos. And even more happy there are people like you in this troubled world.
Yes, if more people could appreciate the beauty around us, the world would be a much better place. Your photos are a reminder that there is beauty all around us. We just need to pay attention to it.:)
We are in accord. Thank you & be well my friend~
Thank you so much. Have a nice day.:)
Wow, Cindy! You are such a gifted photographer! I love egrets! They are so elegant. We see them here a lot. Last week while I was driving by the river, I saw a seagull fly above me. I looked up quickly just in time to see a fish flopping in its grip! It was amazing. 🙂
Isn’t that amazing when you see this. It shows how incredibly fast and skillful birds are, and how lucky we are not to be their prey!
It is! I felt blessed. Yes, they are so smart; I sure am glad we are not their prey!
Fabulous photos, Cindy! You are an amazing photographer!
Awww, so kind, humbled & honored. Thank you! 🐤🐤
