The Deer Came Early Tonight-Jan. 13th-2010
I was surprised to see a few of the deer out there early tonight. I got a few photos. Then they went through the neighbor's yards to get to other bird feeders. They got spooked though and ran back up through into the woods. Later they came back after dark. That little one was right down near my windows again. He wandered into the tight spot by my bedroom window. I was watching him because I was worried about him trying to walk up the rock wall and fencing. He did try to get out that way but turned around and came back and lingered by the window for a while, eating whatever leftover nuts were out there. I shined the flash light on him to make him go towards the front so he could find his way out and get back up on the hill. The other deer had already gone home. One of the foxes was out there at the same time. First time I've seen one in a while. Did not see the crippled one though. Hope I do soon just so I'll know he's still okay.
These are the photos I got tonight and some from today of the birds and hawk. I got some photos of the Cardinal in flight today too. And that Sharp-Shinned Hawk was in that tree for a very long time. The squirrel was nearby and at one time tried to climb around the hawk but decided to go up further to a different branch.
