Yup, my yard is still overrun with critters.  From my old friends the turkeys, to geese, chipmunks and squirrels, here is a view of one day and what I may see looking out of the windows of my old house.

This Turkey Lady decided it was time for her beauty bath.  Uh, she kind of needs it.
Meanwhile, I have, again this year, been visited by the Canada Geese.  This year, there are eight of them, and they are a real nuisance.  My yard is full of poop, and I have come to the conclusion that I am going to have to quit putting food on the ground for a while, until they give up and go away.  It's a pity that they are such a messy bird, though, because they are really beautiful.

But small mammals are equally well represented.  This chipmunk was cracking me up.  I've seen squirrels on the sunflower seed feeders before, but, never chipmunks on the niger seed feeders.  It must only take 90 gazillion of them to fill those little cheeks.

Rachael was very interested in this little guy, right outside of the window, too.
Squirrels, oh yeh, there were squirrels, too.  Very determined, as always, and very successful, too.

Oh yes, I love my old house, and the critters that visit.  Minus the Geese.
