Is it a squirrel? First I thought it was a rat but then I see it looks like he has a bushier tail going down @addy1

Sorry I though I typed raccoon, big one! When it was further from the cams you could see the coloring.

I toss out lots of extra seed when the weather turns bad here. Just filled my two feeders that hold 20lbs of seed each.

I need to refill my feeders before the snow starts tomorrow. I'm tired of being screamed at by the bluejays because the peanut trays are empty!

They give me grief also. So do the squirrels if they run out of food

The squirrels are all back home. Lol. A hawk showed up and broke up the party too.
I got out and put fresh seed out too when the weather is bad, they can’t find anything to eat when it’s snowing bad out.
I made my squirrel feeder out of 1” plexi. They can’t chew it, but when it’s empty, they get mad a shred the cedar lid.

The pic I posted this morning of my feeder, it’s a bad pic, it doesn’t look like it but the 2’ tray is filled with birds.
I see my pond is frozen over even with the bubbler going. Maybe I’ll drill a hole in the ice?

These are not the best and don't have your sound on, judge Judy came across real loud!

I used my phone to film the deer out in the field off of my cams off of the TV, there is a little one that has been having the best of time playing out there. It was having a wild time in the snow.

Haven't seen any birds around here in the last two days other than the usual Downy Woodpecker. So damn cold! :cold:

That little one has been playing a lot, usually hard to see without the snow. Way out in the back field. I need to run a line to back there with a cam.

I've said it before, I always see their tracks in my yard, but I never see them. Here they are! I glanced out the window and saw them in my neighbors yard as they jumped over the snow mounds along the road to get across the street.

My camera isn't the greatest at distance shots but I brought it w/me today to take pictures of the snow. Noticed these guys up in the trees so thought I'd do my best to get a shot.

Two Bald Eagles below............this road has tons of them at times and they all roost in a certain tree. Today none. These two were in a different tree closer to the road so I could get a bit of a view of them.
