3rd Time a Charm??

Today I removed this toad for the THIRD TIME from my front patio! He likes to sit near the air conditioning drip. If he wasn't POISONOUS I really wouldn't care but either one of my 2 dogs could lunge to investigate him and suffer from his nasty toxic secretions. Bleh! Here's more about him:

Fluffy no more! Fierce!


Scroll back to see these fierce hawks as little white feather balls.... the weeks have passed and they are now fully equipped to fend for themselves. Check out those beaks! Those claws! Magnificent birds.
