Deer Make A Daytime Showing

November 29th, 2009

The White-tailed Deer have shown up a couple of times recently. I had a doe eating out of the tray Friday morning and another, smaller deer outside the fence. Susan spotted a buck just outside the fence on Saturday. Still waiting for the number of birds at the feeders to return to normal. I have not seen the Purple Finches since the last post.

Cracked Corn Disappearing At Night

November 24th, 2009

It looks like some of the deer have returned to the cracked corn tray. They are feeding at night right now so I can only guess it is them based on the amount of corn that goes missing. Bird visits are getting close to normal for us. It will be nice to get back to having to fill the feeders every day ;-)

Purple Finches

Nice surprise to see both male and female Purple Finches on the feeder cam. This is the first I have seen of them this season.

Seed Run

November 17th, 2009

I have been out of the sunflower meats that bring the bluebirds to the feeder cam. I am making a Bird Watcher Supply run later today and will be refilling the feeder late this afternoon. The activity has been really slow, however it is showing signs of picking up. I am having to fill the feeders up on a more regular basis again..

Dirty Camera

November 14th, 2009

I am at work and can see the glass needs cleaning on the camera housing :-( I will take care of that tomorrow morning when I feed them. Hope everyone is having a great day. Jim

Beautiful Fall Day

Have been watching the birds a bit on the feeder cam while I work today. Nice

Monday Updates

November 2nd, 2009

You may have noticed a large drop in the number of birds at the feeder cam. After a three year drought, we have been having higher than usual rainfall for several months now. Lake Lanier, our nearby recreational lake, is full and water is being released to keep it from going above that level. One of the results of all of this rainfall is that nature has provided its residents with an over abundance of natural food. The birds, squirrels, deer and rabbits that frequented the yard before are able to easily find food without having to visit the many feeders we and our neighbors have out. I know they will return as the weather gets colder and the natural food supply dwindles. I have left out a couple of hummingbird feeders out for any wintering hummingbirds in our area as well.
