Turtle loves back scratches? Whaaat!

Steph's right, it was probably a bat.

Idaho Spud maybe it was a bat that you saw.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 18, 2015 at 12:40pm

This morning, while it was still dark, I went outside and saw something flying around under my eaves, where I had the green xmas lights on. 

My first thought was that it was a large moth, because it was banging round in there like moths do.

As I approached, it flew away from me, but still under the eaves, and it appeared to be a small bird.

I didn't get a good look, so I don't know what it was, but as I followed, I thought maybe I shouldn't follow it because it may be a rabid bat.

I didn't see it again and don't know what it was.  It did seem to fly like a bird when it flew away from me, but I've never seen a bird bang around like it did at first.

There's been an explosion of wildlife in north central Indiana this summer--rain induced, I suppose. Frogs and toads, birds, insects (esp. mosquitoes), mammals, deer. We've even had spottings of bears and cougars. Now if a bison comes wandering by, I'll really be shocked!

Alaska’s Migratory Birds Cope with Climate Change

I am interested in how the migratory birds react to climate change and I wonder if they can change their patterns and still raise their young. This site should be a place to stay informed on studies being conducted. 

Let me know if you find anything on this subject. 

Comment by Plinius on June 16, 2015 at 7:52am

And it even occurs with people!

Like so many "wild" animals, rhinos are very loveable when treated kindly.

Comment by Joan Denoo on June 15, 2015 at 9:20pm

This lovely video of a baby rhino coming for a snuggle offers a real lapful.
