Yellow Bellied Sapsucker

I was out in the yard this week breaking up twigs for my rabbits and I saw one of these yellow bellied sapsucker birds up in the tree. I knew what it was from the sound alone that it makes and what kind of pest they can be too, even if they are a very innocent looking bird.

They are part of the woodpecker family and they are very destructive when it comes to trees, destroying over 250 different species of trees in the process of getting sap and insects from them. Even with there destructive nature, they are still a great find while in the yard or out in nature as they tend to get shy when people and other animals are around.

The one above me in the tree was anything but shy, as it continued on its task at hand of boring a hole in the tree at an incredible rate of speed. It was great company as I listened and continued with my daily errands.

Happy trails!

Rabbits Against Magic

This is a cute comic strip I came across late last year and being I love rabbits and everything that has to do with them, this comic of Eightball and Weenus makes me smile each time I read it. Not all of them are funny like some comics are meant to do all the time as you have to read between the lines so to speak to understand what they are talking about, but it's a good read each day, plus reading them daily helps too as it continues on each day most of the time.

I read all of my comics online at GoComics which is where this one comes from, as does my favorite Calvin and Hobbes, and if you want a cute read of cuddly bunnies with some attitude and sarcasm, this one I recommend. It's written and drawn by Jonathon Lemon who I think does a good job with this strip for being his first comic. Click on link to see Rabbits Against Magic at GoComics. Happy trails!!

Kitten On A Mission

Look at this cute kitten. Isn't he/she adorable as ever? When I first saw it I wanted to reach out and hold it in my arms it's so cute looking.

The more I looked at this picture the more I thought about it and what the kitten is doing. It has that look of determination like it's on a mission of some kind and was going to win no matter what.

What do you think of when you see it? Does it make you smile? It made me smile instantly and I'm still smiling! :)

Happy trails everyone!

To Kill a Mockingbird or Not

This was sent to my phone this week by a friend and I got a big chuckle from it as I looked at the kitty and the look on it's face, and what book it was reading. Too funny! I don't know where this originated at but whoever made it deserves a big thank you and a big hug too, as it made my day and my friends too as I sent it to them all.

Happy trails everyone!
