Zone 3

"Watchful Remington"
reporting from Zone 3 observation tower
(the deck)....
View from the tower....
please note the Kitty Palace for the wild cats to have protection from the weather and to have dry food and water available....
I thought I would share pictures of some of our friends that have come to visit Zone 3 recently....
Mr. Pilated
All the woodpeckers seem to like the suet we put out for them.
Mr. Raccoon
Getting a drink of water early one morning.
Mr. Oriole
He sure liked the grape jelly we gave him!  I wonder if he would like it on toast?
Mr. Grey Fox
He was here at 5:00 that morning! 
Missy Deer
This was taken in the winter but I just wanted to share it with you.
What is neat about all of these pictures is that Beth took them from her kitchen window!
That is why she said she doesn't need a TV.

I'll share more pictures of our friends in Zone 3 in the near future.

Later -- Remington -- Enjoying the Nature Channel without a TV  -- out!

Frankie Furter said...

Zone 3 is TRULY special. I know what Beth means about not needing TV when you've got all that grrreat NATURE STUFF right out your window.
You and Beth and Mike and Oz are REALLY lucky to live in such a grrreat place... and the Wildlife is DOUBLE lucky that they provide for them!!! SPECIAL That discribes you and your two leggers!!!

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Remington, Zone 3 is so cool!!! To look out the window and see all of those animals is wonderful mom says!! She just loves it there!! We don't have that here where we live. Mom said she would probably sit by the window constantly. She hasn't see a woodpecker like that for many years and that was when she was going horseback riding way out in the country. We love it!!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Jacqueline said...

WOW, Rem, Zone 3 is awesome!...You guys have so much wildlife in your backyard=a variety of so many adorable creatures to watch and enjoy!...It's a wonderful life!...kisses...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

MISTAYA said...

Boy Remington, You have a lot of animals to watch during your day!! Me too! Isn't it fun to watch them when they don't know you are sitting there on the deck so close to them and them don't even know it!! That's fun!! Hugs andwags, Mistaya

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Wow you get to see great stuff out the kitchen window at your house! And boy that oriole is lucky to get grape jelly! Be glad we aren't near you because our dad loves grape jelly - we can totally see him out there stealing some!!

Thanks for showing us all the neat visitors you get Remington!

Junior and Orion said...

WOW!! You get lots of cool visitors! WE are very thankful that you put out shleter and goodies for all of them.

Zona said...

What a beautful Zone 3 you have! Do you ever get to visit it from outside the tower? My mom especially liked the bird feeder set up and kitty palace. You got her thinking over here!


Martha and Bailey said...

Hi Remington, we are loving Zone 3 - what cool pics.
As you say Beth would not need to watch TV. The little deer was delightful - we would go mad for that.
The woodpecker was cool and we loved the colours on the other bird - Mr Oriole.
How great of you to put out some food and water for the kitty cats. We bet they appreciate that loads although perhaps don't always remember their manners and say thank you!

little princess Luna~ said...

Minna Krebs said... does have a Nature Channel in your yard!

Mr. Oriole is truly beautiful...we don't see those here in Texas. Onlys Bule Jays and lots of Mockingbirds.


Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Oh Remmmington your Mom got much better pictures of the critters and birds than ours.. Guess she needs to camp out right under the bird feeder. The deer was way off in the field but Mom had to take the picture...

JackDaddy said...

Wow, what a nice back, Zone 3! All the animals were great - except I think I might have be a little wary of the fox. Beth and Mike are so cool taking care of all the animals in your yard!!

Teddy Bear said...

You have a zoo in your own backyard. That is pawesome!

Teddy Bear

The Teacher's Pets said...

I agree with Beth! Who needs a TV when you've got a kitchen window? If I had that much wildlife in my yard I would be snapping pictures all day long! How lucky you are to have all of that entertainment every day! I certainly hope you are careful when you see the deer and the raccoon and the fox though!
Hey, did you know that on Monday I started a BOOK GIVEAWAY? The contest ends on Saturday at 5pm so hurry on over to my blog for details!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Rem -
Zone 3 is very cool. The only "wild" animals we see here in the city are the seals as we pass through the zoo at Central Park on the way to the Boathouse Cafe for breakfast (is it Saturday yet?)

Ms. ~K said...

Cool wildlife...How do you keep squirrels out of your feeders?

The Thundering Herd said...

What an excellent nature show outside your window. We love watching all of our furry neighbors, too.

The Army of Four said...

Wow!!! What a window! Can we trade!?! Just gorgeous pictures - thank you so much for posting them!
My favorite one .... sigh ... is the first one. Oh, Remington, you look SO handsome!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Who needs television when you have such a magnificent show going on right outside your window! You live in a very magical place, Remington.

Busy Buttons said...

You've practically got a zoo in zone 3!

SquirrelQueen said...

Wow! Remington, this is a really cool zone. It is so wonderful that your family provides food, water and shelter for the wild creatures. The photos are fabulous.

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Remington, you have your own version of Wild Kingdom in your own yard. Mom saw a fox in our yard this week too. She has it on video but it is so dark that the quality is really poor.

Thanks for sharing all the beautiful creatures.
