same here!!!!!!not many birds right now. the wrens sure are noisy. catbirds are about the only thing eating the jelly. i'm going to be pulling the mealworm and jelly feeders soon.
my frustration is not having any morning doves around. and them gosh darn friggin sparrows.
It took me almost a year to get those flying squirrels out of my attic about 20 years ago, never did figure out how they got in and out. My birds seem to have all but disappeared. Hope it’s nesting time and they’ll be back soon. Stupid catbirds keep slurping up my grape jelly though.
According to secchi disc readings, Eagle Lake near Battle Lake, MN is ranked #1 & Lake Six in the far north of Otter Tail County is ranked #2 w/ depth of 140 ft & clarity readings at times better than Eagle Lake.
I see plenty of people fail to slow down for a deer in the ditch, like the deer knows not to jump out. Or a deer crosses and people don't slow down, even though there is a good chance there's more than one.
I had one run square into the side of my car. Never saw it. I thought I got sideswiped by car. It rocked my car pretty good. Deer got up, took 5 steps and fell over dead.
Although I agree, a higher deer population comes with more collisions.
Ever increasing speed, inattentive driving, and less and less dirt roads have lead to more in my opinion.
Reaction time is paramount to Avoiding deer car collisions.
