Watson Jay Clairemont the 3rd Esquire: Update!

20 Aug

Now who is this stranger with the fancy name? A Duke? A country gent? Nope, Watson Jay is a…possum!!! Haha yes it’s true, and no I am not ill. Around here in NEPA we have a lot of wildlife and sometimes we have regular visitors to our home. We have a female deer who returns to our woods every year to have her babies called Mama. We have the little rabbit that you already have been introduced to called Little Rock. Then there is Snefru the chipmunk, named after a pompous and bratty ancient Egyptian royal. Snefru is not afraid of anything even though he can potentially be dinner to pretty much every animal around here. And finally there is Watson the possum. Watson has been making regular appearances lately one of them being during the day yesterday. I found it odd seeing a nocturnal creature out in the day feverishly looking for food. Then it dawned on me, what if Watson is a Wilhelmina? The only time I have heard of possums being out in the day is when the mothers are looking for extra food for growing babies. She also had a funny gate which could indicate she had babies in her pouch. Well if this is true congrats to Watson (We will still call the possum Watson even if it is a girl, haha). We are quite familiar with animal babies around here. We have hade fawns, tons of bunnies, and even baby skunks. We don’t have a picture of Watson yet but once we do I will definitely post it. Have a great day everyone, new beauty post coming soon!!!

*******Update: Guess who I got a photo of!!!!********

    We have a possum that comes every evening. He/she likes to eat the birdseed that falls on the ground. Possum is very shy – no picture on my end yet either.

      Watson seems to show up more and more maybe we will get a glimpse of the speculated babies.

        That would be GREAT! I’ve always hoped to see opossum or armadillo babies in our yard.

        I got a pic of him! He looks like an old timer.
