Stories in the snow

The hourglass track through the center of the frame are pheasant.  They drag their tails.

Somebody decided to leave in a  hurry.  No feathers, so it was not a Cooper Hawk strike.
Sumac berries on the snow.

Birds were feeding on them.
A railroad tie being used as a fence post
Rodent "shoddy" at the base of the post.
I don't know if the interloper wanted the mouse or the house. 
Birds were working the weeds over for seeds.  Most of these weeds were amaranth.
Something in that hole smelled good!

  1. Pheasants!!! Wow. I haven't seen or heard a pheasant around here in a coon's age. Turkeys on the other hand have established themselves as the dominant bird species around our feeder. They can really put away the black sunflower seed.
