Each month, I will present a new Animal of the Month post. Sometimes it will be a photo. Sometimes a clue. Sometimes discussions.

Look here to find out links to current and past “Animal of the Month” features.

December Animal

February 20th, 2012

This is one of my favorite animals. Here in northern Indiana, and in much of the U.S., they call in Spring and made terrific spiral flights.  To see it calling, check out the site of  great wildlife recordist Lang Elliott:

November Animal Surprise

November 3rd, 2011

Look who came to my book signing! This tortoise lives outdoors on the grounds of the education area of the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden. Someone left the door open during my signing and the tortoise walked in and up to my signing table. No joke!

October Animal

October 3rd, 2011

Time for some desert animals. Jeff and I drove all the way to Phoenix so I could give talks at the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden. LOVE this place. Full of plants. Wild birds, butterflies, squirrels, and bunnies wander freely. These Gambell’s Quail strut around, then dash, dash, dash when startled.
