During the Flowerland radio show a number of our listeners sent in more backyard wildlife pictures. Here are some pictures from listeners of my radio show this past Saturday. The first picture was sent to us to confirm the Heron nests a tenth of a mile from the Pierson exit on US 131. In addition pictures were sent in by listeners of Cooper’s Hawks, Barn Owls and even a Coyote. In addition I’ve posted a picture of a beautiful owl that visited us at our live event that attracted huge crowds at both the Alpine and Kentwood Flowerland stores.

More Birds of Prey sightings with this mild winter. With no or little snow cover to afford protection for mice and voles and other bird of prey snacks, it’s not a “fig-leaf” of your imagination that sightings have increased. Check out this picture from Leigh who snapped this picture in her backyard!

Birds of PreyJoin me along with the Joe Rogers, raptor biologist and the Wildlife Recovery association for a free demonstration on Saturday February 11. Joe will be demonstrating birds of prey to our audience at Noon at the Alpine Flowerland 3801 Alpine Avenue and at 2 PM at our Kentwood Flowerland 4321 28th street SE. Joe will also join me on the Flowerland show Saturday morning from 9 AM to 11 AM on NewsRadio WOOD 1300 and 106.9 FM.

Thanks Debbie for this great picture!
