Hanging Out

The other day I was walking back to the house after making a deposit in the Hillbilly Compost Bin when out the corner of my eye I saw something unusual...


What's a snake doing in a bird house!  This was Country Boy's first bird house he built out of scrap wood shortly after we moved here.  A pair of Great Crested Flycatchers moved in that year but it has been vacant ever since.

This guy stayed like this for a long time.  


I think he got tired of me looking at him and taking his picture so he stuck his tongue out at me and decided to go back into the bird house.


A little while later he came back out and decided maybe this wasn't a good house after all since one can't just hang out without being watched!


So, he slithered on out, sticking his tongue out at me again....





and decided to go up in the tree where he was less noticeable.


I haven't seen him in there since.  Hmmm, I wonder where he's at now!

We're having another rainy day here.  While I am loving the rain, I wish I could send some of it to my bloggy friends who are in desperate need of rain.  Hang in there!

Till next time,

Okay, those are such cool pics! I wonder if there were eggs in the house that the snake wanted to eat?
