White-tailed Deer

doe

I peered through the fog out my kitchen window to find I had a visitor to my feeding station.  I hustled out onto the deck yelling and flapping a kitchen towel.  All she did was look up as she chewed.  While my neighbor is complaining about mauranding bands of turkeys, I have a much bigger issue.  With a yard full of oaks, I usually have buckets and buckets of acorns that will sustain the wildlings all winter.  This year, the acorn crop is non-existent.  Sigh, I think this doe and her fawn will be visiting a lot.

Meanwhile, the birds were all sitting in the trees waiting for her to leave.  Do you have much of an acorn crop by you?

  1. Last year, we could hardly walk through the yard for slipping on all the acorns. This year, nary a one. Scary. Even the trees are affected by the nation’s recession and saving their resources.

  2. Love your deer photo even though I hear your sigh. I’ve been amazed this year with the bounty of nuts, berries, seeds here in TN and I read that yours are not so great. Such different cycles in different parts of the country.
