Great pic Chris, no doubt about who is running the rails there.

Very funny shot, Chris. Now, THIS is motive power. If they can deliver gifts to the whole world in one single night, they certainly can lead a train on a snowy trail!

Frederic: Got your North American lore a bit mixed up - that's a moose, reindeer are supposed to do the sled hauling for Santa Claus!

Chris,
Thats one big moose! I would love to know how they got the picture, what were they riding in? Looks like maybe the back of the train looking at the lack of snow on the rails.
If it's the front of the train I hope they have the brakes on.

Wow, Chris! I thought for a moment that was Bullwinkle!

Guys, in looking back through this thread, I am simply amazed at both the wide variety of wildlife we've been able to photograph and post over the years and the longevity of the thread itself. Who'd 'uv thunk that when I started this topic back in November of '03 that it would still be an active thread years later? Pretty neat!I really enjoy seeing everyone's wildlife pics.




Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm a busy man. I have a railroad to run.

Ah, sorry Bob... I'll be more careful next time not to mix the species...

One of our backyard squirrels has found the tray feeder is a great place for a snack again:





I'll have to work on discouraging him when the snow goes, as I intended the feeder to attract blue jays and such.

Someone just sent these pictures taken in Michigan near the Wisconsin border. Amazing what Mother Nature can do.

Glad the Ducks are enjoying and early season swim in the pool. Of course I'm in the swimming pool business.

This morning, the sparrows in my back yard were making a hell of a row - they do squabble with each other quite often and gangs of them seem to fight each other. I went to see what all the fuss was about, and sittng on top of my bird feeding table was Mrs Sparrowhawk. She must have caught a glimpse of me through the kitchen window - because she was off, up and away - but I thought what a great photo it would have made - with her sitting on the top of the table waiting for food!

Hi Peter,

We see these two ducks (or their twins) several times a year. In this area of Fresno there are several large groundwater recharge ponds and apartment complexes with artificial streams and ponds so I guess we're on their circuit. According to my wife, who took the picture, there was quite the conversation going on between the squirrel and the ducks. We have a large family of the former living in the trees around our house. They drive our two cats crazy. We also have a pair of doves who visit and sit on the railing of the fence around the pool. Too bad you're in New York, I need to have some pool work done. I hope Spring is coming back there. Sounds like you have had more than your share of snow. Since we're below normal here in CA, you've probably had some of ours.

Cheers

Brian Smith

Not what you'd really call "wildlife", but a regular Robin that normally appear in the spring. We've seen a few around the house most of the winter, assume they did not fly south as usual. This guy was all fluffed up because of the cold and really windy day yesterday. Not as clear as I'd like, as I enlarged it quite a bit.
