Guess how many animals Kyle brought into the nature cabin this summer?

 Direct from Kyle:  “The only resident animal this summer was a ball python (boots), but we had: Red Eft (newt), Redback Salamanders, Pickerel frogs, Wood frogs, Leopard frogs, Deer mice (live trapped in back room and humanely relocated - kids never touched them to avoid possible disease transmission), Midland painted turtle (discovered on road, released the same day), Dragonflies/ damselflies/ FishFly, Harvestmen, Various Arachnids, a multitude of insects, including Luna Moths/ Tiger Swallowtails, and an invasive fire jewel beetle. Some lost animals rescued from inside or around the cabin, including a nuthatch, female sapsucker, juvi hummingbird, and a few sneaky chipmunks and red squirrels. Also lots of songbird visitors at feeders. Goldfinch, Purple Finch, nuthatch, Junco, Blue Jay, Mourning Dove, Sparrows, Chickadees, a rando Crow”.  Thanks Nature Kyle!
