I've been watching them too Randall. You are right - They are very good.

Comment by Steph S. on October 1, 2015 at 10:31am

Those shows sound very good Randall. I will check them out on PBS.

Comment by Randall Smith on October 1, 2015 at 7:11am

There have been some really good nature shows on PBS lately. The series on Gorongosa Park in Mozambique has been especially good.

Turtle loves back scratches? Whaaat!

Steph's right, it was probably a bat.

Comment by Steph S. on September 16, 2015 at 5:09pm

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!
