Some happy view...

Big snow coming to The Catskills, and has already started... So some happy view...
I see deer every day, all day, often herds. In fact I see all the critters... if there's food for them, you'll see them. Bluebirds nest here every year, but they need a house:

A black bear ravaged my bird feeder, twice... so no more feeders:

Here's the big fella showing off:

Before the black bear wrecked my great bird feeder, twisted my iron crook into a pretzel too:

King birds are rare for this area:

I really liked this feeder:

Woodpeckers liked it too:

Now I feed birds on a table:

I don't know how anyone can claim they see critter prints in the snow but never see the critters... I see them all, deer are looking at me through my windows every day.. two were just here. I see all the critters, and I have thousands of photos. It's very rare I look out a window and not see critters within five minutes:

I don't think I've ever looked out a window and not seen deer, especially at night... just have to know what to look for, deer can be elusive, they blend in... I know my property intimately, the slightest thing out of place even at a great distance catches my eye, keep watching and it will move and sure enough it's a critter, and when I see one I know there are more. Deer and wild turkeys:

if you feed them, they will come...
we don't particularly feed anything other than what grows here normally. i can usually see rabbits if i get up early enough (like this morning there was one silloutted against the snow).
as for other tracks, i can find deer, mice, raccoon, chipmunk, cat and various bird tracks, but won't see the related critters that come through at night. i don't like outdoor lights at night so whatever is out there is welcome to be left in the dark.
blue jays are here almost all winter, there is a hedge that holds some berries through the winter that they flutter around in and they seem to like the larger white pines we have too.

Nice pics. I get as many deer but can't hunt them. Your place - probably could. Bear, no, and I would not want them. Black bear are fraidy cats but can cause a lot of damage. My bird feeder did not stand up to squirrels and racoons.
