Driving on Minnesota roads is not for the faint of heart this time of year. In a two mile stretch we saw seven deer.
Chance was entertained.
Three maybe more came out of this corn field.
How many more were lurking in there? Corn fed deer will be on the menu for some hunter.
On our drive we saw one baby skunk out during the early evening hours. He was waddling down the road near Ponsford. One baby rabbit was in our driveway. The black and white kitty that is a real cat and not a skunk was spotted near our back driveway. I have not seen that cat in awhile…I thought perhaps the Eagles got it.
The baby Robins flew the rake yesterday. Far Guy and Chance watched them.
The Mama Robin had two hatches this year both behind a rake that is hanging on the side of the garage. I asked Far Guy to build some platforms for her next year. She or one of her older relatives used to build on top of the step ladder…not this year. There were four hatchlings in this nest.
Chance has a Chipmunk that he is stalking. It keeps him busy for hours. I think he is just toying with it and keeps it around for his own entertainment. Did you know that Chippys are meat eaters? One was observed eating a mouse.
The mosquitoes are not too bad. Apparently they don’t like the cooler weather that we are having. I am not seeing any butterflies, but there was a nest of bees that Far Guy got into…Paper Wasps…he was stung several times. Paper Wasps eat butterfly larvae…so that could explain that:)
