Wow great pictures to say the least. Field mice are much better that those annoying mice you find in people’s homes.

Truly well done photos of field mice in their natural habitat.
I stumbled upon this link while browsing through Digg. As an animal lover, I got intrigued and followed the link. The pictures are really amazing. It would be great to have some kind of descriptions and short articles with them. They would create the context and complete the story. Well done guys. It must have infinite patience.

Amazing little guys.
I have to be honest now. My grandmother used to live in the country & babysit me all the time. Field mice are cute but their little yelps freak me out.

Amazing photos! I’m always a little disheartened when our cat catches one of these little guys.
Excellent pics of the little pests.. Any homeowner will tell you… these little cuties are the worst. they can get into everything, any where.. I had to get two cats to rid them and keep them out where they belong and are not hated…lol great pics though.

Great captures of these mice. They are either field or harvest mice, I must admit I’m not sure. But they’re certainly not house mice, which are a different species entirely.
nice pictures i a specialy like the mouse in the nest

Caught the 2 field mice that got into my house (their is a space near the corner of my Security Screen Door that they can squeeze into). The two field mice had 4 babies. The weekend before Christmas into the New Year I got sick & got better, but then the Savella really started give me trouble. In the mean time I set up “live catch traps in my house,” closed off some of the rooms so they wouldn’t get in to them. Started catching them one by one with my “home made traps,” caught mom & the 4 babies. Dad was hard to catch. On 1/2/2012, started reduction of Savella. My Safety Check had expired 12/31/2011. Yesterday, 1/4/2012 got the tall kitchen trash can that had the field mice I had caught so far, decided not to wait to catch dad, but to my surprise the entire family was there. I had kept them alive all this time, thought of keeping them as pets, but decided they were born free & should live free! I put the tall plastic trash can into my van, wedged between front & back seat so it wouldn’t tip over & they wouldn’t run around my van. While waiting for my Safety Check, spoke to 2 others with expired Safety Checks & told them my story I just wanted to catch & release because all the field mice do is eat seeds & small insects. The lady suggested the Old Waialae Cemetery on the next block, sounded good, but didn’t have good feelings about the area. Diamond Head, ocean facing came to mind, but remembered Peter told me he saw mongooses there, cancel. I took them to Kahala, found a thick area, long stretch of flowers & plants that had automatic sprinklers. This is where I decided to give them an upgrade in living & release the little family. Now they will be known as the “Kahala Hillbillies” (ie., Beverly Hillbillies), no longer in Kapahulu. This way mom & dad could raise their little family & have everything they needed. Dr. Donna said they mate for life & are very good in finding their way home, drive them far from home. Texted Chad, he saw them near my wall when there were just 2 of them, (texted back, LOL, U R funny). His dad w/Parkinson’s likes to feed the birds “seeds” everyday. The wall on the other side of their house is just a short rock wall, no cement holding the rocks together & has been there since our street was a horse & buggy trail I found out from the original owner growing up. This his where the field mice live. At 1st I caught 1 & release it then another. Then I found out they had babies & decided to do what I just told you. Happy Ending! )

You must have had a lot of patience to catch these adorable small creatures. Just the look on their faces is enough to make you smile.
My wife and I never cease to be amazed at the cleverness of some of natures creatures – be they cats, dogs, birds, mice or even rats. While a bit destructive bush rats as we call them (living outside in the scrub)are really intelligent and resourceful. Our compost heap gets a good work out from some of them at times.
Thanks for sharing the enjoyment

Thank you for posting these. I always try to sit quietly and imagine I am “in nature” as it really is and that I am so quiet and still that the animals are acting just as they would if a human wasn’t present in their space. I think you captured that…unless of course, the mice were just playing for the camera!
