    DH found this laying eggs in the front yard while he was out mowing. Its a western painted turtle and after research the eggs should hatch in about 72-80 days depending on temps. Gonna keep an eye on it.

    And my son and DH found kittens in our barn, 3 calicos. We do not have any outside cats but we had been seeing a cat around every now and again she is quite feral. Apparently she has adopted us. I will post pics of them tomorrow. Their eyes are open and all 3 look really healthy [​IMG]

    Last weekend we went to the lake and these are some pics we took there.
    This was in our yard, no clue where it came from, lol.

    Dogs found a turtle.

    And a different one.

    Then we went to cook dinner on the grill, pulled the cover off and found this

    I love taking pics of everything [​IMG]

    Quote:Well if DH was awake I'd ask but for the life of me I can't remember [​IMG] They are small brown birds and there were two flying in and out. Six eggs total in the nest so I figured two were sitting on the same nest.

    You have a maternity ward there! Is the cow still there or did she find her way home?

    Wow, So cool to get to see a turtle laying eggs. In our previous house, we had a small pond. We always knew when frogs were laying eggs in it, because they would be croaking loudly. Shortly, we would have tadpoles.[​IMG]
