Perusing through my winter photos, I came upon this snapshot. I took this one winter’s morning at a time I’d normally have been at work. Lo and behold, I discovered why I was going through so many 50 pound bags of sunflower seed. Nary a songbird in sight, I am apparently feeding all the local wildlife. As the weeks wore on, five additional tom turkeys joined this group on a morning and evening feed. We enjoyed them for many weeks until such a time as spring came upon us and mating became more important than food.
The squirrels, for better or worse, are daily visitors–no matter what the season!
