DoubleDutch what kind of birds are those? The little ones remind me of Juncos, but they're not. That big guy is beautiful and very scary!
Oh geez, just saw the names at the top too busy looking at the pictures to see it!
Those are young Barnswallows still getting fed by their parents. Getting ready to fly to Africa soon. I love them.

Tiny toad, these little guys are out in droves. They’ll be happy once the ant hatch start flying around, I like to place toads right near the entrance and watch them gorge themselves, natural pest control!

Caught this little guy just cruising along the wall of my most favorite fishing spot since I was a kid! Baby snapping turtle. I also caught a one pound bass!

He was born and raised in Wateren in the Netherlands. That place is in the middle.of the aerea I hiked and I even passed the farmhouse.

So it is the same Dr.Pol.
We had the young one and you the old(er) one hahahah.

I just a few weeks ago I found a butterfly chrysalis in my giant field and I kept it in a butterfly hatching about 20 gallon netted cage to see what happens and this morning it had hatched and it was a black spotted cabbage white so beautiful

These are Scaly-breasted lorikeets, had to look them up as I'm used to seeing rainbow lorikeets in the garden instead.

Went catfishing yesterday and saw this guy drowning. Rescued him and he let me snag some good pics, not that he had a choice. His wings were wet.

We have a ton of blue herons in Tn along with a few green ones. the green heron is quite small compared to these gigantic blue ones.

Not raptors, cranes. New world vultures.

This is an interesting article, some people think they are raptors some don't. I'm still sitting on the fence. The vulture still remains my all time favourite bird.

Pretty wild as you can see.

Very interesting! I found this article that is fairly recent an it seems to disagree with what I thought I knew, or at least what I had read not long ago. It says that Old World vultures are NOT raptorial but that New World vultures ARE! Just the opposite of what I thought.

They are also one of my favorites. Well, unless they are bathing in the horse water tub!

They are trying to confuse us, which in my case isn't hard to do! Be they new or old world I always wondered because their behaviour is unlike eagles, owls and hawks who are predators and not scavengers. Good article!

Just got these nice shots of a big praying mantis. I saved him from climbing my fence and put him in the bushes and as I snapped the last shot he looked at as to say “thanks”

Yea but .... oh well being a male praying mantis sucks.

Why is that? I was just guessing the gender... but I assume bein a male sucks cuz the female lops their heads off after mating or something along those lines?

Isn't that reason enough ? hahahaha

We haven"t any wild sheeps here Jake.
Only wild as in running when frightened hahaha.
To be honest we don't have "real nature" here in our tiny country.
That's why panick has hit now there are some wolves which decided to live here and crossed the border from Germany.
We aren't used to animals that behave natural anymore. Reaction : panick, fear, etc etc...

Assuming this is an owl. Is it? Anyone know its ID?
 

jake37

It is most definitely an owl like looking bird. You will know for sure when it turns its head backwards. that's the 100% sure way to know it is an owl - but be careful some people get screamish when it happens - esp little sisters.
