I normally don't share links, but this is too amazing not to share. Pileated Woodpeckers are pretty rare here, but this takes rare to a whole new level! A leucistic Pileated woodpecker has been seen along the Milwaukee River.

You can have mine! We have a herd that winters over in our back yard. Anywhere from 6-25. Given up on any veggies growing in the yard.

Last night I finally saw a buck, and a adult die was laying down in the the scrub on my property line. Something knocked the feede over. I didn’t see any of it though.

Woke up to find deer tracks everywhere this morning. Front yard, backyard, neighbor's yards.

We watched a nice herd play in the yard yesterday, we counted 10 with a few yearlings that were running dancing chasing each other having a great time. Old mama's just watched

I was surprised to see about 10 in a field not too far from us on my ride the other day.

Last night we saw 4 Does, they were very cautious of the new food. It’s funny watching, they took turns tasting. They can’t be starving, they don’t eat much. They saw us watching them, one came real close to see

These are off of our nvr system, feeds right to the tv in our living room. I have a trail cam, usually forget about it until the batteries are dead then go pull the car out see what it got pics of.

We had around 10 out there last night. Two were napping. They looked like yearlings.

Last night the whole herd was in my yard, really I think they always came through my yard, but sat night they were drinking from my bird bath, one walked across my pond screen, I just re did it again, but again, they walked through it before I fed them.
at midnight, my back yard was loaded with deer. Lol.
they don’t eat that much deer feed, they just grab a snack.

They bed down all of the time in our yard. We watched two does rearing up and do a mini fight.
