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.

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

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
