So, I can't remember if I wrote about this on DW or LJ but my twitter people might remember me mentioning that I found a cleanly severed dog ear in this park by my house a couple of months ago?

Probably not related at all but today, in the same park, I came across a pair of grackle wings that apparently were deliberately removed and posed.

Ran into a couple of chickens hanging out my neighbor's dumpster when I came back from doing laundry. I know that someone a few blocks from here has chickens, but these two don't look like theirs. No idea where they came from or if I should do something about it. They're near a pretty busy street. IDK, IDK.

I just found a... partial animal jaw bone like right in the middle of my bridge? No idea where it came from (unless it fell out of a tree) or what kind of animal.

what does it MEAN? )

A very friendly unfixed tomcat was prowling through my yard today. I gave him some food and let him hang out for a while, but IDK... he was way too friendly to not be someone's pet.

He's wandered off now, but I took a few pictures )

Well, it was on my bridge when I found it. On Wednesday there was some flooding in Austin from the tropical storm. My creek flooded, in fact - I only saw it kind of lapping up over the edge of the creek bed at one point but one of my neighbors said it got even higher and another neighbor said he saw it actually flowing over my bridge - and I'm thinking maybe the turtle was deposited somewhere in my yard by the flood water. The creek is at a normal level now, and I let the turtle go near the water after harassing it and taking pictures...

A different heron from the one who was hanging out a while back has been coming around. This one's young and kind of ugly. One picture under the cut, plus one of a tent moth caterpillar I found, and a video of Shit Piece.

Saw a snake in my creek this morning. I think this one was just a brown water snake, nothing poisonous. It was hunting tadpoles or small toads. I couldn't get any good pictures, but I took a couple of videos - keep in mind, these were taken on a shitty digital camera, so the quality's not great.



+ one more )

ETA: Holy fuck, has anyone seen pictures of the new sinkhole in Guatemala City?

This is how little my cat gives a shit about squirrels. Strangely, he will chase birds and rats.

pardon the video quality, my camera sucks )
