I keep a feeder directly under the window so I can refill without going outside. Gets a good amount of night visitors. Night visitor music by Joseph Blanchard.
Also put up a street musician who plays a skeletonized violin in a Target parking lot.
Alessandro Tanansache in the parking lot.
Two camera videos up Ping
Where is Amahl?
>>Where is Amahl?
Sleeping it off?
Anyone able to confirm that’s a red fox?
If you mean the Joseph Blanchard, I find all of his music like that. This was one of the sprightlier pieces.
A playlist of his pieces used as music videos
He plays in hospital lobbies near cancer centers. Doesn’t read music, so composes on the fly and memorizes roughly what he plays. Just an amazing man with a heart a mile wide.
Thank you, mairdie-!
Saved the link!
The music is absolutely wonderful!
First time I heard him playing in the lobby, I sat down and didn’t get up for ever. He had CDs that I got and talked to him. He said I could use his music for music videos and I went crazy with them. He loved it. And he loves Trump, so he’s thrilled with those videos done to his music.
He’s such a decent man, and that makes the music even better for me.
My fingers wanted to play music as I was listening to his music!
Not like with rock-n-roll, or soul...
A different type of feeling...lighter, somehow yet full of life.
Did you get a CD from the street musician? His music was beautiful.
It was that or one other song, and I thought I could fill this longer one.
I didn’t get a CD. He is wonderful. I’ve seen him listed all over the country. He always plays in parking lots from California to Massachusetts. I heard the music. Couldn’t judge where it was coming from. When husband returned from Target I got him to drive there and the gentleman was JUST ending his whole playing. Husband moved the car while I was recording, which was incredibly frustrating. And the man doesn’t seem to return to where he played before, or I would have followed him to another parking lot to try recording again.
Hey...thanks for that...
I have those in my backyard mostly on a daily basis to include coyotes and 3 cats and river rats and voles...I didn’t know about the nightly party until I installed “Blink” cameras around the property,
I am only guessing the one I capture on “blink” like in the video is a groundhog or a mole.
I redid my deck and closed off the area underneath, so the skunks and possum just visit.
In the summertime, it’s picnic time as I have a spitload of mulberry bushes and cranapple and some other small red fruit-bearing bush.
Sounds absolutely magical.
What surprised me was that they eat together. I watched a raccoon stick its nose up a skunk’s behind and wondered if it would get its comeupance, but it didn’t. They just all eat together, drink, and go their own ways. Also, never expected that the foxes would eat peanuts and not the other little critters. Really worried me at first.
I’ve never seen a river rat or vole and I’m incredibly grateful that mine are grey foxes and not coyotes.
