We had one mourning dove visit us in Gooseberry Cove summer of 2015 and again this year sept 2016 We feed a feral cat And believe the cat killed the dove on Sept 23, 2016. Very sad about this - these doves are very gentle and because they are tame they are very susceptible to predation. (reply...)

We had an infestation of Meadow Voles here, coming from the un-mowed gardens nearby. A weasel moved in under my studio, and slowly the Vole damage disappeared. I have not seen a Vole now in two years, but the Weasel is still around. I really think they like Voles as a food source.

Ihave no pictures as of yet, but on Friday sept16 I have seen this weasel 3 times in concetitive years just out side my door in ST JOHN'S. twice as white as snow, the latest light brown with a white under belly. very small creature, but very nimble and curious almost friendly. I don't know if it is young or full grown. Ihave also seen vole activity in the same spot, wondering if it preys on thease voles? (reply...)

I have a great position in my late father's office. the Kingfisher's often sit outside on the balcony railing or on a nearby flag pole. All i need is time to sit and wait. they react to any movement.
