Another storm is expected during the overnight hours, this time bringing ice accumluations as well as snow. All of the feeders are filled with Black-oils and other mixtures and a new cake was added to the suet feeder. The bounty awaits for God’s creatures that will arrive in the early AM. These New England storms can be very tough on the birds and other critters and enough food is critical for their survival. Although many may disagree, when the snow is high and the temps are frigid, I do allow the deer to nibble on our "sacrificial" Arborvites. They are quite inexpensive in our neck of the woods and grow very quickly. Besides, who could say "no" to their cute faces??
