Re: Black rat snake

When I was a kid, my cousin and I were playing in the creek at my aunt's house and before I knew it, a big cottonmouth struck at me. I jumped out of the way in time but it sure did scare us! My aunt killed that one. I've only seen one copperhead at our house, but my parents' house has quite a few. T...

Re: Your bird sightings!

I think we had a barn owl at my parents house several years ago; we saw it fly once and it was huge but never got a great look at it so I'm not positive what kind it was.

Re: Wrens

No didn't get any pics of the parents; they wouldn't stay still long enough lol. I'm pretty sure that they are Carolina wrens.

Re: Black rat snake

I've never killed a black snake or a king snake...even though I was VERY tempted when it ate my chicks LOL. But I DO kill poisonous snakes! One of my brothers is a snake fanatic and won't even kill a copperhead but he's nuts! We had a copperhead in our yard a couple of weeks ago and it scared me hal...

Re: Gray tree frog

I've always loved frogs and toads; when we used to go camping all my younger cousins would want me to go frog hunting with them - it was a blast!

Baby Sparrow

I opened my chicken pen one day and found this baby sparrow flopping around on the ground (too young to fly). He fell out of the bird house that was next to the chicken pen so I was able to put him back :) https://img.photobucket.com/albums/v181/nickibell/Other%20Animals/10608381_10203109529922602_8...

Re: Luna Moth

I was pretty excited how the pics turned out; I have a cheap camera and my pics are usually blurry, but I had the setting on macro and they just happened to turn out pretty sharp :D He stayed in the same spot for several hours - I thought he might have been dying because I don't normally see them ou...
