A few furry friends and one not so kind one, encountered just recently during the last backpacking trip.
The obnoxious bird with it’s screeching call. You could hear him sitting in the tree above the tent, screaming of the top of his little lungs that had an unusually loud, echoing call. Dropping pine needles and other things onto the tent, we had no choice but to laugh and it appeared that he was trying hard to get us to leave what he might have considered his territory. We even got bombed by him during the day and he pooped on one of us in midair hahaha. The next morning and after all failed attempts to annoy us enough to leave, he had left another little bomb right on our camp stove. I should elaborate on this encounter and I’m sure it would make a funny post for my friend Linda. If you haven’t checked her Guest in Jest series and need a good laugh, please make sure to stop by.
A little chipmunk, contemplating life while watching the sunset. I wrote more about him here and learned that the word “Spunk” can have different meanings. Haha.
A sweet little hummingbird that was nearly impossible to photograph. I spend a good portion of the morning situating myself within close distance and waiting patiently for it to sit for a fraction so I could snap a quick picture. Hummingbird, also a spirit animal encountered and a feature post about it’s symbolic meaning.
Hello Ms. Pica. A rare sight and in all my hikes, I have maybe seen three or four at the most. They are small in size and you can easily identify them by their huge ears.
