Mystery Critter #67

Hello, my beloved nature detectives! It’s time to dust of the Mystery Critter game. I took a bit of a break after finding out that someone was stealing the series and publishing it as their own. But, you can’t keep a playful spirit down, so let’s dive back in!

You’ve worked hard all week, and now it’s time to play hard, and see what Mother Nature has up her sleeve.  Put on your thinking caps and let’s get to it! And remember — no cheating. ;-)


  • I dine on insects, snakes and small mammals
  • I make my home in deciduous forests
  • Some might say I am shrill (The nerve!)
  • I can be shy
  • Many of you may have seen me, or one of my cousins

So, what am I?

Make your guess then go to eNature for the answer and more interesting facts.

Did you get it right?

If not, no worries. You will have another chance soon!

Remember, when looking for wildlife, keep your eyes and ears open! Look high and low, and most importantly, enjoy yourself. Nature is not a destination — it’s all around us, and beautiful in so many ways.

What critters can you spot in your neck of the woods? Be sure to tell us!

And don’t forget! Join the Wildobs community and share your wild adventures with the world.
