Union Springs: 19 Jan. 2015.
Confirmed this a.m. that the bird I saw yesterday afternoon in dim light
under one of our cedar trees was indeed a SONG SPARROW, my FOY.
As I was watching the song sparrow a Cooper's hawk came sweeping by on
its way to the stand of spruces where the the little birds hide out. It
has been patrolling quite regularly.
Deer came again about 1 a.m. to raid a feeder that is no longer where
they can bump it to get sunflower seeds. At least one skunk comes to get
seed droppings. If deer, squirrels, possums, racoons, rabbits, chucks &
rodents were as useful as skunks, I wouldn't resent their presence. As
it is, they aren't welcome!!!
35 deg. & very windy.
