Holler Homecoming Hoedown~

SUNP0075
The wild critters seem happy we are back at The Holler. They staged quite the homecoming! Even Wiley E. came out in broad daylight, sashayed by, and winked at me and I have the pic to prove it!

Look how fat and healthy he is! I don’t even want to think about what he’s been eating. He’s not too shy is he?

And what big teeth you have Mr. Coyote! This is a different Wiley. Possibly a Willette. We have lots and lots of Wileys and Willettes at The Holler.

Beep Beep is always content snooping around us. He is a hobbyist human watcher. He doesn’t even pay attention to Wiley E….. Smart Beeper.

The shy little woodpecker even dropped by to say hello!

After six years I have finally learned to make a credible hawk call. I called, they came. Or maybe they were just flying by. But I think they respond to my call and it confuses the ravens too. They keep looking for the hawk on the ground!

And of course The Holler Hummers. I miss them so much when I am away.

Europe is incredible but they don’t have Wileys or Beeps or Hummers. Wild animals just make the very best neighbors. I like having them on my HOA!

And The Holler? Well it is rural, rustic, and in a horrible drought, but even so, it is awful purty.

Cheers to you from all the happy Holler critters~

We met this barn owl in Antelope Valley California. (Please click to enlarge).

He was rescued due to an injured wing and lives in a California state park named Velasquez Rocks (more on this park later).

The Holler Hawks have been flying closer lately!

Sometimes quite close over my head which is a big thrill.

They have figured out I am not a threat to them.

I can identify different hawks by their missing feathers.

The best way to see a hawk of course is in free flight!
