Yesterday morning, as I was walking by that window (less than 48 hours after I hung the bird feeder) I noticed a mama deer staring smugly in at me. She had something in her mouth. OH no .. it was a pinecone.
I don't think the birds had time to even discover the seed-covered pinecone yet. The deer certainly found it though!
|If you look closely, you will see a pinecone protruding from the right side of the doe's mouth.|
It is illegal to intentionally feed deer in Montana. If I coat another pinecone in seeds, now that I know the deer consider it a tasty treat, I will have to find a higher place to hang it!
I hope, however, that they enjoyed the one they stole! Merry Christmas to them!
In addition to giving gifts to birds (and unintentionally to deer!) I am going to be offering bloggers a chance to win a wonderful prize in a sweepstake on Monday. I hope you will stop back then, and enter!
It is so mild here right now that we have muddy tire tracks on our driveway instead of snow!
What is your weather forecast for this weekend?
