Such a beautyful bird !

There is a pair of Little Grebes in my lake this summer. Not nearly as impressive as the crested one, but very pretty, and they make the most unusual loud, rolling, whisteling sound Very Happy

Last night my family rode our 4-wheelers back in the woods for a hotdog roast, and a black bear ran right in front of my dad. I have never seen him look so surprised! Laughing

I've been to the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh today and look what I saw there - a Common Moorhen chick! It was very close to the fence between a path and a pond. Its mummy was very shy and hid herself among the plants but this little lad was more outgoing towards people Very Happy

No pictures, but I had a bear run in front of my four wheeler the other night when I was riding in the woods. It was kind of spooky when I realized what had just run in front of me!  affraid

First alive wild jellyfish I've ever seen!

The rocks were covered with hundreds of tiny barnacles:

I wanted to photograph a distant rock with birds on it and look what I've noticed on a photo - a European oystecatcher! I was excited like a child when I noticed it! Very Happy I observed it for a moment through my camera (on a very strong zoom).

Are these Eider ducks? (also strongly zoomed)

Wonderful critters , small and tiny  cheers 

Yes, those are female eider ducks, - I have never seen those ( as far as I know, I am very near-sighted), but jelly fish ! Sometimes it is like you can walk on the water on the coast here, there are so many Yugh ! tongue 
But the one you show is very beautyful Very Happy

Amazing that you saw that little fish, he alsmost looks like rock  Shocked Very Happy

I've seen plenty of dead jellyfish on Baltic coast, some alive in tanks in zoos and aquariums, but never any alive in a sea Very Happy And there were a few of them!

I'd never seen Eider ducks before in real life, as far as I know they're very rare in Poland, if they ever appear there. I'd love to see a male one day! I love you 

And there were many little fish in that pond, I noticed them only when they moved as they saw me Wink

I've read there is a population of puffins around North Berwick, but I didn't see any Sad Maybe another time.

I've seen tons of dead Jellies too, or some in aquariums, but that one is gorgeous and amazingly wild! Great pictures of a great sounding adventure.

The other night I was walking out of the woods because I had been fixing a roof on my deer blind and I saw a pair of eyes glowing in the light from my flashlight a little ways of the trail and in the swamp. They disappeared but the. Reappeared a little bit farther down the trail. They did this for about 20 minutes while I kept walking, and it was kind of spooky. Eventually, it ran in front of me and I saw it was a fox. It was so mangy that it's tail looked like a opposums. Unfortunately I did not have a camera, but I hope I never see it again.

I haven't had the good fortune to spot a fox (or mountain lion, lynx, or black bear) here, but I have been seeing quite a few opossums and skunks recently.  I had to free an adult opossum who had managed to get himself stuck in our wooden fence and swerved wildly (but successfully) to avoid running over one last evening whilst driving.  

We also now have a wonderful deer family which hangs out in front of our house (and our neighbor's) in the wee hours of the morning (typically 0100-0200 hours).  They seem to like to stand right in front of the usually open living room window and peer into the house at times.  There is a robust little pile of deer pellets in this location.  

My father has seen an adult lynx at close range (100 feet or less) in El Dorado Hills.  I'm still hoping for a big event - a mountain lion or bear sighting, but the odds of that are astronomically tiny.
They are very rare to see. I spend almost two hours a day in the woods, and I have only seen one bear, and never a mountain lion.

I think it was mange. We have had a lot of that going around this year.

Schleich61, my cousin was hunting once in Oregon, and when he turned around, a cougar was ten feet behind him. I think it meant to attack him, but unfortunately my cousin had to shoot it. The DNR did an analysis on it and learned that it was a very old Tom whose teeth were worn down. I guess he was looking for some easier prey.

When it comes to real animals, I cannot skip the topic
So, let me show you the birds that live in around my block in Sofia (Bulgaria). Most of them are quite common, but I didn't know there were so many until I started noticing them (and there are many more, actually :) Sofia used to be a really green city in my childhood, but now is mostly a gray and dull gathering of buildings with only a few green patches (parks), so I was surprised that even in these conditions the little guys make their way and co-exist with us.
Pictures are taken from my kitchen window or at the nearby grass/tree-plot

My favorites - the woodpeckers:

Guys, thank you very much for the kind words about my photos drunken
It was a great pleasure for me making them too :) and looking at the toy models at home I keep thinking how the Nature is the greatest artist there is

No photos this time, but I've recently rented a new flat with windows coming out to shared garden. It's quite green there, I've seen there various titmice, magpies, a squirrel (or two?), and even a fox once!
I'm planning to install some bird feeder in front of our windows to lure small birds Wink I've already bought some feeding fat balls, just need to hang them on branches! Very Happy

I don't have any pictures and I know this thread has been a little inactive for a month or so, but here's what I regularly see around my house:

BIRDS:
- corellas
- sulfur-crested cockatoos
- galahs
- rainbow lorikeets
- eastern rosellas
- crows
- Indian mynahs
- white-backed magpies
- blackbirds
- wattlebirds
- honeyeaters
- occasionally, a laughing kookaburra
- even more occasionally, a tawny frogmouth
- crested pigeons
- Australian wood ducks

We have more interesting bird species about 15 minutes away, such as black cockatoos and superb lyrebirds.

SPIDERS AND INVERTEBRATES:
- daddy long-legs
- redback spiders
- white-tip spiders
- common house spiders
- huntsman spiders
- black ants
- red bull ants
- flies of all kinds!
- European honey bees
- European wasps

MAMMALS:
- Common ringtail possums
- Brushtail possums (common and/or mountain)
- Red foxes (although I haven't seen them in a while, I know they're there)
- Rats and mice (not sure of the species, but rats are either black rats or brown rats)

There are reports of wallabies/kangaroos near our area every so often, but generally they avoid the suburban areas. Swamp wallabies and short-beaked echidnas do live in parks and forests near here though.

REPTILES AND AMPHIBIANS:
- Skink species
- Occasionally, blue-tongue skinks
- Peron's tree frogs
- Striped marsh frogs

I've also seen a group of 5 oystercatchers, but my camera had died before I could take some photos of them :/
