Hung out in the U.P. All weekend and there were a couple big birds circling one day. As it soared about 30 feet right overhead, I looked up the native birds. Pretty sure they were Turkey vultures. Cool looking birds.
Now, sitting out back at the new house and spotted a cool looking little finch or something. Brightly colored all over and went to snap a picture. As I step down off the porch I look down and came about an inch from stepping on a snake. Just a garter, but a bite still wouldn't have been ideal.
If you go to the beach, you’re likely to see some form of plastic pollution scattered in the waves or sprinkled among the sand grains. A bottle cap fragment here, a transparent piece of packaging there. But researchers have identified a new, and perhaps more permanent type of plastic pollution...
As I was working on my car on the ground this morning, a chipmunk ran furiously past me. It had another chipmunk biting it's tail & briefly airborne while keeping the bite on the first chipmunk. Crazy, wish I had a video of it. Seen chipmunks do weird jumps and sprints before, but not "assualt" another chipmunk before, strange creatures.
