End of Jan Shots

..for those of you who are interested..I did have a ‘month long’ birdfeeder I made last year..it was too hard to refill..to the point where it was more of a pain in the ass to fill it then fill up the regular bird feeder every other day:

..gosh I hope the snow holds off for 4 more months!

..and some coyote scat on our loop..have not heard them very much over the month and there were not any tracks..not really shocking considering only places with no sun have any snow at all in the area.

Burt T the Grouse

image

A nightly visitor coming around for a dried cranberry treat.  Still has not eating from our hands but getting closer.  Having had chickens in the past the dogs don’t seem to care about it. The Burt T (the grouse of course) is somewhat wary of the dogs but never strays far.

Feeder Enhancements?

..it appeared the birds did not like the feeder..but after close inspection I noticed my ‘feeder holes’ were being blocked by the plastic ( which was bent upwards) around the feeder holes. Cut a couple away to free the seeds up and now the seed is flowing so the birds can get to it. Also replaced the pens with branches for a more natural look and removed the plastic mesh as it was impeding things too…but now things are flowing a little too much..but the birds like it.

Tanglewood Fly Trappings

image

A* sporting some of her summer fashion line.  A hat with a BLUE disposable cup attached and covered with enough tanglefoot (used usually to to ring the bottom of trees to prevent ant infestation) to coat the cup.  Disgusting but effective.

Basically walk the perimeter of the property /area or wear all day.. Usually a couple of days of treatment clears up the deer flies for a couple of weeks

Tall Beavers

image

.. Some mighty tall beaver’s in the area.. Or some beaver activity when the snow was still high in spring.  Seems like so long ago now that the weather is nice.

.. And a nice old wreck on a new path we discovered. It really amazes me how some of these cars got to their final resting places when I have a hard time just walking there
