It is understandable why this species of large Australian bats are named flying foxes.  Their faces are very similar to the fox, with their beady little eyes and large pointy ears.  They very cute,especially the babies.
People often do not realize that bats are mammals.

I saw a bat the other evening when I'd taken some rubbish out the back. They react so quickly.

Spring is the perfect time of the year to hear various birds. I love to hear them singing in the early morning
These are some common species of birds that are native to the northeastern USA.

I was interested in birds as a child and have still got a few books about them. Two American birds I liked were the blue jay and the bluebird. Do you get bluebirds? The British robin looks very different to the American one. I like magpies and we have a folk rhyme about them:

One for sorrow,
Two for joy,
Three for a girl,
Four for a boy,
Five for silver,
Six for gold,
Seven for a secret
Never to be told

I was interested in birds as a child too. We kept canaries and parakeets as pets.

Every now and then I will see a bluebird but, I suspect that their numbers are dwindling.
On the other hand there are plenty of blue jays  around here.

Jays are loud birds and can be very aggressive too!

A couple of years ago I witnessed a blue jay having an aerial battle with a much larger Red tailed hawk.
Probably the hawk was in close vicinity to the blue jays nest. The blue jay was relentless and continued to dive bomb the hawk, until eventually the hawk gave up and escaped by increasing altitude flying  beyond reach.

The magpie is a very handsome bird, he kind of looks like a crow, all dressed up in a fancy blue and white jacket. I read that magpies are one of the most intelligent of birds.
They are not native to my area.

Apparently this young deer and wolf cub came up to the photographer by theirselves:

I can see in young animals the same innocence, curiosity and playfulness that there is in human children.
