|Mapleleaf Viburnum (Viburnum acerifolium)|
Tuesday 9/13/2011 6:22 p.m. 66 degrees relative humidity is 68%. It is breezy.
Two does, presumably sisters and probably mama does daughters arrived. It is amazing how the color has changed since last week. One has more grey than the other but both are far into their winter coat. They both are quite healthy. The one is still quite dominant and insists on feeding first while the other circles and looks longingly at the pile of corn. They are extra wary as hunting season is just around the corner and they need all of the stealth they can muster- it is inherent.
When the deer stand still it is awesome how they blend with the bark of similar colored oaks.
Squirrels and chipmunks busy themselves with the sunflower seeds I have provided and their noise often gets the attention of the deer. The chipmunks and their stuffed pouches continue to fill seed burrows already stuffed from the summer- also inherent.
6:50, Doe #2 finally gets a chance to finish up the corn and they leave at 7:00 p.m.
The breeze is up and the temp is dropping. What a day this has been. Thanks for looking. I hope you enjoy your space as much as I do mine. Till next time. Thanks again.
