Wildlife




So we've been dealing with some crazy wildlife around the house lately. Mr. (Mrs.??) Cardinal over here has been visiting the last couple of days. We have 2 nests in the front of the house but I'm not sure if either one is a cardinal's nest. One day I noticed an egg had fallen out of one of the nests and was all smashed on the front steps. I felt so bad.
Then, we've been dealing with a really squirrelly squirrel. Poor KJ. She's been affected the most. He hangs out in the gutter right under her window and bangs stuff around, runs thru the gutter, chews on the gutter, etc. He's woken me up a couple times real early in the morning so I know he's been bothering her, too. The other day I was sitting on the couch, looking in the backyard and I watched him try to run up the side of the house and get in that gutter. I went out and yelled at him, totally caught him off guard, he jumped from the house onto the deck railing, and tried to jump from the deck railing onto a tree limb. He missed and landed on the ground and actually let out a little yelp. It was pretty funny. It was like watching America's Funniest Home Videos in my own backyard.
