Corporeal visitor.


This little fellow lives in my garden. He's less than an inch long (excluding tail which is twice as long as he is) and he's photographed in the act of raiding the bird-feeders.

He wasn't bothered by my presence and I like him, so he can stay.

I'll put in a lower-down feeder for him.

Great photos.

I saw him again today, dashing out between snow flurries. I think he's a baby mouse but he's a confident little chap and not scared of me at all.

But then, I'm not a cat.

What a cutie.


ver: Oh, no! It's a product we have over here that kills mice! decon(t)

It looks like a big RAT

SW - seen him a few times since. He's most likely a baby mouse. As long as he stays in the garden, no problem.

Angel - way too small for a rat, even a baby one.

How's the little guy doing? Still around? WIth all the storms we've had here over the weekend, I'm curious: where do birds go when the weather is bad?

He's still around. he's found a crack in a wall to live in.

The non-migratory birds mostly come to my garden for the winter. I put food out for them. In storms, they stay home and hope the storm relaxes before they run out of body fat!
