Here we go again with another winter storm. Just when we thought spring was around the corner!! I have already spotted 2 Robins and the ice on our small frog pond was finally starting to melt. This was the first year we kept one of the pumps running in the pond all winter long. As long as I occassionally broke the surface ice around the output hose, we were able to keep the water flowing in these icy temps in order to provide a drink for the local wildlife. All the bird feeders are full and the suet cakes have kept the Downy Woodpeckers and Common Flickers busy. The deer came by at dusk. I am wondering if the fawns have arrived yet. We are expecting more than a foot of snow tonight which will be tough on the wildlife.
