We are forever fining new nests where the parent birds have hidden them. If you would like to create a wildlife habitat in your yard and attract songbirds, visit our Bird Gardens page.

We have three ponds on the farm which means we get our share of dragonflies. They are fascinating creatures!

There are plenty of bunnies here too. You often see them scooting across the fields.

Many different species of birds live on our tree farm. We love hearing them sing and call to each other all day.

Occasionally you see rarer birds fly in during migration season such as this duck.

During bird migration season we are always thrilled when a snow goose stops by. This one is traveling in a flock of Canadian geese.

Killdeer bird eggs are common here! They build their nests on the ground and we keep having to avoid them but they are a pleasure to have around.

Sometimes you've got to move the big guys out of the way so they don't get hurt. This snapping turtle was not happy to see us.

During the summer, butterflies are regular visitors to our plant nursery. Sometimes we think they believe we set it up just for them!

When pruning trees in our fields we have to keep an eye out for critters such as this large spider. They help us keep other pests and bugs down!

Here we witnessed the story of the spider and the fly. We're happy the spiders help us keep the fly population in check.

Water birds are also common visitors to our pond. You should be able to see them on our Fall Hayrides.

Birds nests are common in our trees and a Mockingbird decided she had found the perfect spot to lay her eggs.

Bees and pollinators are a welcome sight on any farm and we are happy they are here. A honeybee finds an early season food source from the flowers of a redbud tree. For plant recommendations on attracting bees and pollinators, see our Bees and Pollinators page.
