The Deer Herd

We have a small group of 4 or 5 white-tailed deer in the yard quite regularly, but usually overnight. I see their tracks in the morning. I tried a new birdseed mixture 2 or 3 weeks ago, and the very first night the deer stopped by, knocked all the seed out of the feeder and gobbled it down. I tried one more time and then gave up. We'll stick with sunflower seed and the chickadees.

But one day last week I looked out and thought I saw something moving in the field across the road. At first I thought it was our little herd of 4 or 5 deer, but they just kept on coming - I think it was nearly 20! Virtually anyplace you go walking in the woods around here you see deer tracks.
