KNOCK KNOCK ~ MR. CARDINAL CAME FOR DINNER


KNOCK KNOCK
As usual, Mr. Cardinal came flying over and I put sunflower seeds on the front porch.
His mate and two babies came over.  They were feeding each other.

SUMMER BLOGGING ~ I WILL BE BACK SOON

SUMMER BLOGGING ~ I WILL BE BACK SOON

 I really miss working on my blog and I will be back soon.
 It's been a very, very busy summer with my work and I've taken lots of pictures.
Almost three weeks ago a mommy raccoon and her three big babies kept hanging out in my yard.  Maybe the mom thought her babies would be safe here.  I  could tell they were playing in my yard at night.  Two nights in a row they knocked my birdbath off of the pedestal.  Knowing better, I lifted that heavy concrete birdbath and put it back on the pedestal.
 I pulled a muscle, twisted or did something to my back.
I've continued to work, but I'm uncomfortable sitting at my computer for very long.
Slowly, my back is feeling better.
I will be back soon and share lots of pictures with you.

SIGNS OF AN ORPHANED FAWN ~ TIPS OF EARS ARE CURLED

SIGNS OF AN ORPHANED FAWN ~ TIPS OF EARS ARE CURLED

Wild Heart Ranch The ears stand back up after a few days of eating. So far after at least 10 years of using this sign with callers that if ears are straight, watch from a distance for mom and let us know, 100% of the fawns with straight ears who were NOT suffering from another issue, (dogs, flood, dead mom) were claimed by mom. They DO dehydrate before the ears curl, but this is a sure way to tell from a distance you have an orphan or if ears are straight, lets give mom a chance without spooking the fawn off its spot, potentially sending it into danger or getting it lost. I trust it and I would never deny an orphan, but nothing is a bigger fail to me than taking a baby from a healthy mom.
"Ears are straight, fawn is great. Ears are curled, fawn alone in the world." Look at the ears before picking up a fawn. It takes a few days of not eating for the ears to curl. Here's a photo of both scenarios.
