The Storm of the Century

Category: Wildlife in the Garden | Posted: Wed Feb 17, 2010 3:41 pm

Hello again from West Virginia.
The blizzard of 2010. Many are calling it the "Storm of the Century". I guess that would be the case, since the Mid Atlantic region has not had a storm like this for over 10 years, it is the storm of the century. At least, this century.
Looking over the snow in my backyard, I hope that Spring will not be late this year, but we have not been very nice to Mother Nature. The animals come to my house every day looking for something to eat. Even those loud and messy starlings are welcome in our yard. Bluejays, titmouses, chickadees, cardinals, woodpeckers, and even a passing crow stopped by for a meal after the storm. The treat we give the birds is cat food. It is great source of protien and has plenty of vitamins for them. Makes them all the more noisy, but I love to have them dropping by. Just wish I could get them to clean up a bit. OMG!! What a mess they make.
I know that the mess is my fault for letting everone of them eat on my back deck. The mess, like the snow, will be gone with the coming of spring.
The deer will come around each day, as will the raccoons, owls, oppossums and the wild turkeys.
Now that I am in my "Twilight years", I seem to see more of these critters each day. Maybe I just hope that I do.

With the weather you have been having the critters are especially thankful for the treats.
