Adventures of Wildlife - In my yard?!?

This has been quite a summer in our yard! Skunks, raccoons, possums, and turkeys! Yesterday the Mom and 7 babies had a little visit. Mom kept close watch as the youngsters hung out for a little R&R.

I think this is the same family from a few months earlier. Glad to see the are well and thriving.
As for the skunk problem.........remember this guy?

Well, I figured out he, she, has been getting too cozy under my house! So I had the Wildlife trappers set a few traps outside the crawl space.

  This guy lives under my bedroom window and is VERY unwanted! Stay tuned for the (hopeful) capture! Anything interesting living in your yard?

Oh my gosh, how cool to have a family of turkeys come visit!! Not so cool to have a skunk come visit though! I hope the outcome is good!!

Wow I've never seen a wild turkey before! Skunks though, lots around here. Found one taking a bath right on our patio one night LOL
