Every night for the past week, the best TV show in town has been our living room window which looks out over my six bird feeders at the edge of the forest. Why is this spot the top ticket? The answer is, starting one hour after sundown, one gets to watch the gray fox couple enjoy a snack of sunflower seeds. This canine pair generally hangs around for 15 to 30 minutes. Last night I increased the food offerings by adding cracked corn and some apple slices under the feeders.
In the last two months, in addition to birds at our feeders, we have had repeat visits from the following animals:
- Gray Squirrels
- Flying Squirrels
- Raccoon Family
- Red Squirrels
Finally, I know that a pair of Great Horned Owls are using our yard to hunt. One may hear their hooting most calm mornings before sunset, or after dark in the early evening. I think the skunks and bears are finally starting their hibernations, thus their visits have now stopped.
