Wildlife and the "Big Snow Storm"

Category: Wildlife in the Garden | Posted: Wed Dec 23, 2009 9:48 pm

Hello again from West Virginia,
I guess by now everyone has heard about the Big Storm that hit the Mid Atlantic states. What a mess, and what a clean up. I finally got our deck cleared and all of the bird feeders refilled. My back yard is 7 acres and it was full of birds, squirrels, deer, red foxes and even a few wild turkeys paid a visit. We have one female squirrel in particular that loves our bird feeder. (I have one set by the back window, on a table so we can watch the birds). I know it is the same squirrel because it only has one ear. Now it is time to head off to the farm store for our usual supplies, sunflower seeds, thistle seeds, and chicken scratch for the wild turkeys and doves. Our neighbor has a small bear that likes to visit his trash bin, but so far I have not been able to see the bear.
Mike

I agree with Glendann we'd love to see some photographs of your backyard and some of the birds and animals that visit you there. It sounds like a little piece of heaven to me. I'm so glad you feed all your wild creatures - without people like you many would starve. Well done Mike.

Where are you in West Virginia? My parents were both from WV and many aunts, uncles and cousins live there in Wyoming Co. It's a beautiful state, Wild and Wonderful!!! Go Mountaineers!
