He decided to be social today. Has been around the Tractor Port for a while now. Not sure if it's Peter or Patricia as yet.

Cute. Good company, not overly talkative.
Btw, with the title, I was expecting something like this

That's cute! Funny how shops and human activity attract creatures. I have a weasel who lives in the shop over winter, there's a lizard in Australia who keeps watch on things, and now the rabbits are showing up. Who else has some non-tame shop pets I wonder?

The wild geese and there goslings pay visits to my shop about every other day. Wander in like they own the place. Curious I guess

We have shot a couple dozen rabbits, they keep eating off the garden and we can't keep them out. It seems like we still have a ton of them, going to go out this evening to see if I can't shoot some more. Although it makes the dogs happy when they get a nice rabbit feast.

I have one very brave cottontail that lives around here ( I have 2 beagles and a beagle/basset cross). I have been seeing tracks in the snow for the past 3 winters, but I have only actually seen the rabbit once. I have had no issues with it eating the garden or my fruit trees. I think it does help itself to the cracked corn I put out for the chickens, but I am ok with that. As far as other animals, I have a pair of barn swallows that moved in this year.

Enjoy the friendly ones - we have turkey vultures that like to check out the fields - lately they have taken to roosting on the shop roof in between their flights.  I was cutting grass several years ago along the lane and felt something brush me and then saw a snake lying beside me on the lane and looked up - one of the turkey vultures had somehow picked it up , taken it for a ride and then dropped it - scared the heck out of me.

Was the vulture laughing?

No - I think he was annoyed that he dropped his lunch and had to retrieve it.  As soon as I was out of the way he dived and grabbed on to the snake again.  I think the snake was partially stunned from the fall and was probably hurting from the initial encounter.  Not sure if the vulture dropped it in an attempt to kill it or just lost its grip but the last I saw the vulture had the snake in a field and appeared to be having a meal.  Fortunately we are south enough that the rattle snakes don't bother us as I am not a snake fan.
