Little Spider Eats Big Spider - YouTube



Spider cannibalism - perhaps shouldn't be that surprising, but this spider versus spider battle should have been a mismatch! A huge roaming Wolf Spider on the hunt taken down by a little tangled-web house spider. But the Wolf Spider crawled into a sticky ambush and the house spider, which is a relative of the Brown and Black Widows struck first slowing it down in its tangled web and injecting venom. I find this outcome pretty surprising, but these little false widows hanging around the deck with their brown egg sacks pack a bit of a punch. I was bitten by one once and it left about a pencil eraser sized fluid filled wound on my hip that took several months to completely go away. I always check the furniture before sitting down outdoors. Note the relaxing bird songs of the Eastern Towhee singing "Drink your tea" and the song sparrow in the background as the big spider is slowly digested from the inside out.

Cardinal Versus Blue Jay Staring Contest - YouTube


Cardinal Versus Blue Jay Staring Contest


Mr. Cardinal puts on his game face and totally intimidates a Blue Jay at the feeder, you can almost read the Cardinals lips/beak when the Blue Jay flinches - their faces are so expressive. Of course that is not the end of it - the Blue Jay being a sore loser is either calling in backup or being as obnoxious as possible to spoil the Cardinals relaxing breakfast.

Dark Eyed Junco and Deep Forest Baby Crow Calls - YouTube



An unusual encounter with an inquisitive Dark Eyed Junco on a trail in the remote forests of the Great Smoky Mountains and some interesting calls from birds that can't be seen - which is typical of the summer forest environment - hear but not see. Listen for the fascinating calls of what I think are baby crows or perhaps baby raptors in the nest and how they carry through the mountain forest.

Eastern Towhee Whistle Call - and a Bunny! - YouTube



Eastern Towhees are one of the most outgoing Backyard Birds in the Mountains of North Carolina as Ms Bunny will attest. Known for their famous "Drink Your Tea" song - they have a habit of making a high-pitched cheerful whistle call while they forage on the ground - and for an added bonus the Bunny and the Towhee share breakfast on the lawn.

Nuthatch Prepper Stores Food in Clobo Trail Camera - YouTube



The ingenious White Breasted Nuthatches are using the tree mounting strap of the new Clobo Trail Camera as a Sunflower Seed Holster to store their cache of seeds. I've had trail cameras up for years and this is the first time I've seen this behavior - evolution. When I first removed the camera a bunch of seeds and suet pieces fell out and I felt bad, but the Nuthatches quickly put them back again.

Clobo Trail Camera is available on Amazon at:  https://amzn.to/2YIvq1e

Camera provided for testing by Clobo.

Downy Woodpecker Foraging


Female Downy Woodpecker foraging. Sweet little Woodies they don't hold still long. Note how she is really more of a crevice hunter be it wood or rock.

Elk Prunes Apple Tree and Mows the Yard - YouTube



Believe it or not some people actually complain when an elk visits their yard, but to me its a privilege to have one of these reintroduced and once extinct (since late 18th century) creatures pay a visit and a little grass mowing, tree trimming and fertilization is just a bonus.

Red Panda or Mutant Raccoon? - YouTube



This amazing creature showed up in the Backyard recently, could it possibly be a North American Red Panda thought to be extinct for 5 millions years - or more likely just about the strangest Raccoon you are ever going to see. The Red Panda and the Raccoon are distant relatives. This huge fellow is unusual for his red color, heavy body, huge front and rear paws that are way out of proportion to its body (rear feet look like about a size 6) and that bobbed tail. This guy has been around awhile and is a magnificent creature to behold closeup. Raccoons active in the daytime are not that unusual especially back in the "jungle" where these live.

Pretty Possum - YouTube



Can we all just agree that Virginia Opossums are just downright cute and lovable? True they have the most sharp teeth of any mammal (50) and they have huge front feet and long claws on the back for digging, but they are rare North American marsupials with opposable thumbs just like us and those cute ears and eyes and pink nose - rarely seen in the daytime around here who can resist their charm as it finishes up the left over crows kibbles and bits. Perhaps it is that hairless tail that turns some people off? Possums are also good to have around the Backyard as they keep the venomous snakes in check they eat cockroaches, rats and mice and help to keep tick populations down so if you see a possum enjoy and say thank you.
