Out of the corner of my eye I thought I saw a bunny rabbit.

Meet Bob. This little guy showed up yesterday with mom and dad in tow. I've never seen a squirrel with no tail. He's got a stub looks like. I can't see any wound/healed area. Looks natural.

I'll spike the patio with more cracked/broken sunflower seeds and see if he is a local and get more photos. His parents look familiar. They will sit there and eat the crushed seeds. Anything else they fill their face then scamper away and bury it in the yard.


Google says tailless squirrels are quite common and that it's almost definitely
due to an attack by a predator. As far as anyone knows, squirrels are never born
without a tail.

Of course, other articles might say something different. I only checked the first
couple of results.

Many DSLRs will do video - both Nikon & Cannon are now being used by video companies as their main cameras on grounds of both cost and quality


My Nikon Coolpix takes cracking video...I couldn't belive the quality the first time I used it......I hardly used my digital camcorder now..

This was the first video I shot with the camera...

At the age of abouyt 10 I had my encounter with a barn owl and I tried to catch it.
He very nicely took his claws and latched onto my thhub and it took 2 others kids to get him off. LOL
Man did that hurt! and he wasn't too happy about it either. LOL


I remember the first time I saw one....I was in my early teens, saw this ghostly white bird fly silently out of the trees....frightened the living daylights out of me.. :o) but a beautiful sight to see all the same...
