Sadly I am reporting that our home and sanctuary has had a theft, and it was a human animal that has disturbed my private domain. We were so angry, he stole a bicycle and our super sleuthing found he came around thru the forest. Grrrrrrr So the camara’s are now set for security and will have more for the animals later. Nothing makes you madder then knowing just how far in a stranger had made it, well good luck doing it again because were ready this time. !!!!
Meanwhile Cooper the hawk and Red are spending too much time picking off the animals, it is feeding time for the babies and our warm weather is causing even more to start to nest. But they have found a gold mine in this part of the forest so I have to keep the food away a bit longer. What is interesting is how the other animals are adapting to the increase in predators, The Stellar Jays are known for mimicking and I can now tell that they use that to indicate what predators is hiding in the bushes. I have heard the hawk, the Coopers , Bald Eagle and my favorite is the strange call they make when its a ground predator like a cat or coyote etc.
Woody and Mamma and our late Juvenile have been pushed back a bit but I do hear them out there and Woody came in yesterday, but its only for a quick bite. Cooper landed right in front of me no worries at all.
I had a flock of Bushtit along with Evening Grosbeak again which is very strange. They usually do not show up until March so lets how this goes. Even Freddie the frog starting croaking yesterday. I’m so curious to see if spring activity is really starting already and what new visitors we’ll get this year. More soon. 🙂
