Hey Basilisk (That's a lizard, ain't it?),
Woodducks squeak and whistle a lot. Sometimes they "sing " along when
they hear high pitched singing. Tee Nee squeaks in time to opera
singers but the funniest thing was when he was keeping time with a
James Brown song.
Look here for a full description of basilisk:
Not sure what this says about me.
I once had a pet muscovy, they have a lot of character,
SWMBO objected to it attacking the kids, so it had to go.
We have thinned the zoo down some, got rid of all the poisonous
snakes (lost my nerve for handling them) and all the lizards.
We do animal rescue, but at the moment all the possums, coons and deer
are grown and gone.
I only wish animal rescue was as great as it appears, it is very hard to
raise a wild animal and keep it self sufficient enough to return to the
wild. Coons are easy, they are very adaptable and learn to get by own their
own, deer become pets and they resist leaving. It is interesting to see the
look on visitors faces when a deer walks out of the woods and sniffs them
over. Then there is the financial aspect, here when you accept the job it
doesn't come with any support, the game wardens will drop off an animal
and you are own your own. Sometimes we are successful and it makes it worth
I am glad you are succesful at least part of the time. Critters need all
the help they can get and I applaud your efforts to do so.
At the moment I need to get rid of a coyote. I could call a trapper but
they generally euthanize the animals and I'd prefer not to do that. Any
I did. Thank you. And it explains why I don't want our resident coyote
Actually, if it weren't for our resident ducks I wouldn't mind the coyote at
all. There are tons of voles, mice, rats as well as other small animals.
Wild pigs too. Unfortunately, I suspect the coyote would welcome a meal of
duck and the ducks already have a hard enough life. Especially from
