As usual, we have been blessed with a pleasant assortment of wildlife. Hey!, you didn't want to see pictures of inverters did you? First there is a shot of "our"eagle in the sweet gum tree.
He looks a little frazzled, but he is nice to have around. On a smaller scale, we have the birds that consume great quantities of birdseed from the feeder. Durelle keeps it full and brings it in at night to thwart the ravenous nighttime critters.
Here is an Eastern bluebird that we hope got a favorable pitch from the local realtor regarding my birdhouse. There are other feeders at the Cloutier trough. Here's one.
Then there are the visitors that we usually see on the far side of the pond. Almost daily we see two or three deer. Recently there was a group of eight. I went out to document the event and captured five as they bounded away.
We also have a blue heron that wanders around the edge of the pond.
We are doing just fine. Our biggest dilemma is one of scheduling. My 55th West Point Reunion will occur on the weekend of May 1st. That's too soon to head for Maine for the summer. It has messed up our planning to a fair-thee-well. If you have some great ideas about where to stall, I'd love to hear them.
