    That is not what you want to hear, when you are sitting nice and cosy enjoying your coffee, but you go and check through the window to see who it is, and decide how difficult it is going to be to get them back. You glance out and see

    I feel really privileged to have been able to sit and watch them for so long

    Great pictures---thanks for sharing! I've seen moose in Maine and Scandinavia when one tried to wipe out the tour bus.

    That is so cool! No moose here to see, so you are lucky to be able to see them in your backyard like that.

    That is awesome! I have seen them up in Montana, clearly not here in AZ. I did surprise a roadrunner on Saturday, he was on the cattle blocking chute. We have them but don't see them that often, they are actually pretty shy.

    Neat photos!!

    I want one.

    This is so neat to have this, and Chester has Kangaroos. I want one of those too.

    The thrill of seeing them will never grow old, and to actually have them in the garden was just special. I was happy to see that they are the jumping variety, they cleared my 3 strand electric tape fence and the barb on the perimeter. Makes a nice change, the one who went through the back of the yard last year just ran through everything :flaming:
