Yesterday morning, when I went outside to feed the critters and do my rounds, it had already been snowing for quite some time. I had to brush several inches of snow off the platform bird feeder, but the deer feed just got put on the ground in the usual places.
Of course, it got completely buried.
By this morning, when I went to put more feed out, I found this.
Can you tell the deer were here? 😀
That is all deer tracks, except for my foot path closer to the house, and you can see where they dug into the snow to reach the feed (where you can see I’ve placed more feed).
There were a lot of fresh tracks under the overhanging branches of the spruces, as well as by the apple trees, and paths from where they jump the fences to get into our yard.
It looks like we got a lot more visitors than our usual group of 3, plus the loan buck! Either that, or they just came back more often.
