On a Warm February Evening

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!).
