Fauna Watch

Blogger is slow today for some reason. Just some news and observations. My friend left the hospital after 3.5 months this past Thursday.I suspect that he'll catch up on his sleep once he's home. Hospital rest is an oxymoron. His sleep was always interrupted mostly by techs taking vital signs or the intercom going off. While running this morning, I saw a breeding pair Scissor-tailed flycatchers perched on a utility line at an intersection. When I came home Thursday morning, I found a large marsupial on my stair landing making the rounds. It was a 7-8 pound opossum. Sorry that the image is so dark.

Next time I'll use a camera with a flash. The Flip had trouble in the bad lighting.

Here's the Australian possum http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Possum . It was introduced to New Zealand where its reached plague proportions due to lack of predators.
