A long standing question here at Chez Carrabis is “What do we call the young ones?”
Consider: Our dog, Boo, is always called “Pup.” Okay, he’s also called “Boomeister,” “Mr. Boo,” “Bootosky,” and you get the idea.
And often, just Pup. So what did we call him when he was still a young thing?
Doglet, of course.
I’ve written of our Turklets.
And, of course, there are Rablets.
I last wrote of Rablets on Christmas Day 2020, so obviously they’ve been around for a while whether seen or not.
I wonder where they go when they’re not seen?
Do their numbers diminish such that there’s less competition for food so they have no need to forage in our yard? We’ve known for many years the local wildlife prefers our yard to our neighbors’ and suspect it’s because our yard is all natural, no artificial anything, no fertilizers, no pesticides, just life as life would have it.
Try it. See who shows up.
You might be surprised at what they have to teach you.
