On September 18, 2018 at 8:40 AM Eastern Time, we caught a photo of this fellow looking into the trail camera. Not sure how to caption this one. Any ideas please let me know.
I do not live on a farm but I do live way out in the country. Country living is interesting and fun. It is also takes a lot of work. Let’s start with interesting. It ‘s interesting because you get to see all kinds of animals and learning about those animals is interesting. I can’t tell you how many times I didn’t know what kind or type of animal it was that I saw and I would look it up on the computer to find out. I find it interesting learning about different kinds of animals. Second, it is fun because some of those animals you can interact with daily. Third, it takes some work if you want to interact with animals daily and I’m not kidding. You have to be willing to talk to the animals out in the open and not mind if someone does hear you talking. For example, my family talks to the birds, turkey, deer, stray cats, squirrels and etc… that come into our backyard and what we call a campsite. I have woods up back of the house as well as on one side of our house and across the way below the neighbor’s house there is a creek. I say we live in the country because we do. You see, we get all kinds of animals like Deer, Squirrels, Stray Cats, Different kinds of Birds, Raccoons, Bobcats, Bear, Snakes, Fishers, Turkey and the list goes. For those of you who don’t know what a fisher is, it is “a small carnivorous mammal native to North America. It is a member of the mustelid family and a part of the marten genus. The fisher is closely related to but larger than the American marten. The fisher is a forest-dwelling creature whose range covers most of boreal forest in Canada to the northern United States. Names derived from aboriginal languages include pecan, pequam, wejack and woolang. It is also called a fisher cat, although it is not a feline.” The Scientific name for a fisher is: Martes pennant, the Biological classification is: Species and the fisher Belongs to: Marten. I got this information from bing.com/images. As you can see country life not only proves to interesting but fun too. Please remember that it takes work too. Please note, the one image is past sunset but has a full moon in it. I sure hope you enjoy this post on country living. If you are interested in looking up about a fisher, here is a link that you can do that and it is: Country Living. Please note that city life is not mentioned because I’ve never lived in the city before. I have lived way out in the country all my life and have loved it. Please enjoy the pictures as well as post.
