A kingly bird


Mary Jo Giaimo sent us this photo of an eagle perched on top of a barn on Northland Drive, between 14 and 15 Mile Roads, on Saturday. Are those also eagles soaring above or some type of hawk? Either way, they are all big birds!

Feeding more than the birds

OUT-Feeding-more2-chipmunkOUT-Feeding-more1-bunnyRon Parker, of Courtland Township, sent us some beautiful wildlife photos last week. “We have been feeding wild birds all winter, but now that Spring seems to  be here we have been receiving other visitors who are just as much fun  to watch,”  he said. Thanks, Ron, for sharing your photos with us!

We would love to see your wildlife photos! Snap a photo and send it to us with some information and your contact info. Send it to news@cedarspringspost.com.

A tail of another color

Ron Parker sent us this photo of an unusual looking squirrel.

Last summer the Post printed several photos sent in my readers that showed black squirrels with a white tail, or white markings on their tails. Recently, we received this photo from Ron Parker, of Courtland Township, that showed this black squirrel, with a reddish-brown tail.

“We get about one squirrel each year that visits our bird feeders, and today was the day,” said Ron. “Most of the time they are not note worthy but, in this case, I thought I should share this picture with you. If I didn’t know any better, I might suggest that this black squirrel’s momma had some explaining to do to her mate when this guy was born. Since we seldom see squirrels in our yard, I feel blessed to have seen such an unusually colored squirrel, and hope to see him or her again.”

When we ran the story last year about the black squirrels with a white tail, Ranger Steve Mueller explained that they were genetic mutations. But, like the deer with the white face, we still like to see unusual animals!

Thanks, Ron, for sending us your photo!

This bright red cardinal has been hanging around in the trees outside of the Post newspaper offices. This splash of color brightened up the day last week Friday, when he finally let us take his photo.

Do you have wildlife or wildflower photos? We’d love to see your signs of spring! Please send them to us with some info to news@cedarspringspost.com.
