Out of My Rear Window 1/30/11
So, cheating a bit, here is a picture of some white-tailed deer at the feeder last night. Yesterday, it snowed off and on all day. When it is snowing, I put the food out in piles, rather than scattering it. I have noticed that the birds seem to be able to find it better and, by rooting around in it, they also keep it clear.
I haven't seen any deer at the feeder all winter. They usually come late at night, to gather any small pickings that the squirrels and birds have left. Don't ask me how they knew that there were easier than usual pickings last night, but, there they were. So, these four got nice full bellies to face the winter night.
