Here is a picture of the newest Wild Things resident: a little Woodland Vole, or Pine Vole. She (I think it's a she) was found by the side of the road running in circles- probably somehow disturbed out of it's warm burrow. Most voles are monogamous, which means that this little miss may have a mate waiting for her, and so, when its warmer, she'll be returned to the location where she was found.
Here is a picture of the newest Wild Things resident: It's been very cold and snowy here, so it's good that the little vole has a place to be for now. Btw, the voles finder has called her Victor. To the right is a picture of the little female sapsucker whose been frequenting my feeders. She appears to be the only sapsucker in the woods near Wild Things at the moment.
Two little yearlings. I've seen these two a few times without a mum. I was told today that one female deer was killed during the hunting season in the woods behind my house...so it may have been their mum.
Tom & Theo and their gang. They've been hanging out with 2 other males who make a lot of noise and I've seen be a bit aggressive to T&T (even though one has a nose flap thing, they are all about the same size). But then I go out to scatter food, and the other 2 run off, whereas T&T, especially Tom come running over. So cute! I talked with one of the local hunters today who seems to know T&T and said he wouldn't hunt them. I hope not.
