Here at Casa CabÃ¡n, Mom and Dad have what they call a “Wildlife Sanctuary” in the back yard. There are lots of animals to observe! Today, I thought I would introduce you to some of the animals we like to study.
Mom and Dad feed the birdies and squirrels. Mom and Dad put up this gate when they open the door to feed them. So, we get as close to the gate as we can. Here, we are on “Squirrel Patrol”.
Here is an opossum, AKA possum, on our back porch:
Mom thinks he’s cute. She says “he is one of God’s creatures after all”. We think he is kinda scary looking. And he’s bigger than us, so we’re keeping our distance.
This is a squirrel watching me watch him:
This is a different squirrel taking a bath while standing on a fence post. Impressive balance!
These are butterflies in the back corner of the yard, where Mom and Dad planted daffodils:
I hope you enjoyed your tour of the Wildlife Sanctuary at Casa CabÃ¡n!

O Hi O is full of interesting things to watch. Was that squirrel holding a tiny bat for protection???
Well I sure liked your post today! I got super excited to see the possum. I have never seen one of those before!
Thanks for stopping by…..hadn’t seen you guys much lately.
You have a lot of interesting and unique critters in your yard! Um, in the second photo of the ‘possum, is he going poopies? I cannot tell for sure, but it looks like he might be.
I have never seen that kind of butterfly where I live. They look pretty!
We have all of those things in our yard, too! My mommy thinks opossums are cute, too. I think our mommies are stange.
He he he… it does look like the possum is doing his business in the second photo, but no, that is actually an eaten corn husk that the squirrels discarded. 🙂
You have some cool creatures to observe. It’s good to keep your distance from the possum. I hear they’re very mean.
