Yesterday we saw our first Bluebirds this spring.

We had a heavy wet snowfall overnight and the trees were covered with over an inch of snow. I walked around the farm taking photos before it all melted.

 

It has been about two weeks since I last checked my trail camera. With spring nearing there has been a lot of activity. Most of it has been White-tailed Deer. They are really curious about the camera and seem to spend a lot of time looking at it. This results in a lot of useless photos. I’ve seen only one buck the in the last month.

 

I’ve had a fair number of Wild Turkeys posing for the camera.

In addition I’ve had a pair of Coyotes wandering past the camera. This is the first time I’ve seen a pair of Coyotes. There have also been the usual cast of characters, squirrels, Raccoons are now out and about, the neighbors cat has also been around.

 

 

It snowed almost all day so I manage to capture quite a few cardinal photos.

 

After returning from a morning of skiing on the Red Cedar Trail I took a few frost photos from around the farm.

 

Nothing brings cardinals to the feeder like a good snowfall.

 

The White-tailed deer were moving around in February probably because we had so many warm days. For some reason I captured quite a few photos of deer looking right into the camera. One one shot of a buck and this corresponds to what I’ve seen around the house. Lots of doe’s but no bucks.

The Wild Turkeys were moving around as well. I had a flock of 30 plus that I would see around the house. However this past week they seemed to have dissapeared. It might be because it is mating season.

A few squirrels were out running around.

I’ve had a few Blue Jays hanging around my feeders this winter.

We haven’t had a lot of snow storms recently but I’ve managed to capture a few photos of Northern Cardinals when it has been snowing.

 

 

A few shots from the farm this past week.

Black Squirrels have become quite common in western Wisconsin. However, this is the first one I’ve seen on the farm.
