With temperatures in the mid 40’s today, our little herd seemed to be enjoying the mild winter. Browsing is easier this year without the snow, though that didn’t stop them from visiting the feeders again. They’ve really taken a liking to sunflower seed and empty the little screen tray every time I fill it.
They make the rounds every morning and evening, like clockwork, visiting my yard and all the neighbors with feeders, in the same order. You could almost set your watch by them!
Yeah, I hate to say it, but I’ve become attached to our neighborhood deer (sorry Sissy!).
New baby, just hours old. Mama has had her babies in the old nursery every year we’ve been here. I watched three sets of fawns grow up here. Big sister, last years baby is on the right. The twins, now three years old are just out of shot.
When we got up this morning we could tell the deer had worked over our snowman a bit because some of the apples were gone. They came back again a few more times to get as many of the apples as they could and by this post, around 5:20 pm, they came back one last time and finished the rest.
