I had a sudden wish to listen to some Scottish folk songs, so I've made a short playlist. I suspect my favourite one ('Shoals of Herring') might not be Scottish, however.

We used to have a turtle hanging around but not for ages. Rabbits are coming back and we had a few Ibises roaming around. I thought we'd lost them for good.

Are yours the same hadeda ibis that we have?

how to wake the entire neighborhood with a baby tomato  :icon_mrgreen:

We have white ibises and glossy ibises. The white ibis is the University of Miami's mascot. I went there for two years.

They hang out together pecking at out lawns. We used to see groups of 20-30 every day. Now it's only 3=5 in a group.

We have lots of the hadeda ibis. They have that terrible noisy cry. They peck at pot plants as well as the lawn and ruined a bonsai. They also pulled apart my penjing gardens when I left them on the lawn in the rain :icon_rolleyes:.  We call the white ones the sacred ibis, but they are not seen much.

That is such a gorgeous picture, Maggie Ann. I see them here (SC) on my walks with my dog.

Jeff, there's been so much building going on here, we are seeing bobcats (entire families) and coyotes. Snakes are making more frequent appearances, too.


You live in Florida, so when you talk about snakes being a problem, I assume you mean giant pythons are swallowing young children on a daily basis.   :icon_eek:

I have yet to see a bobcat, and I'm glad for that, though the neighbors saw one hanging around years ago.  No coyotes yet, either, though foxes abound.  I know the coyotes are a plague in Georgia now; I just haven't seen one yet.

I welcome the snakes so long as they're not the deadly ones.  Snakes eat mice and moles and whatnot.  I appreciate snakes.  But I appreciate them because they're just ordinary snakes, not the giant pythons of Florida or some other kind of eldritch horror.


Whereas I saw nothing outside today. I was hoping I might spot a box turtle. I love them and I know we have them here--well, we did until the fox kits grew up and learned to hunt, anyway.


At my childhood home, we'd occasionally find a box turtle in the backyard.  I haven't seen one since I've lived there, and I miss them.

The pythons are coming. They caught an 18 footer with 110 eggs inside her. They hide in the Everglades and are hard to find. They have dogs who hunt them. They are decimating the deer population but I haven't heard that they're swallowing alligators or panthers. But they have been seen in more populated areas.

Mostly, we have black racers. Harmless except to rats and mice. Since the garbage debacle, we love the black racers. There have been sightings of cottonmouths and rattlers.
