Trailcam snowy tales

 Well snow, snow, snow! The ground cover is wonderful, as it protects flora and fauna. We woke to -19 C. temperatures. At -20 C. and F. meet. Just so you know!

I've not seen feral (?) 😼Oregano  for several days. It's been cold. And snowy. Maybe he's not feral, even if he isn't fixed.

I moved the trailcam, down to the path that leads to the island in the wetland. After the dump of snow... snowy deer  

It's funny seeing the young buck hanging out with family. Next year he will be with the males in their winter yard. He should have lost his 2nd antler by now. doe and buck in snow


The snowy doe and yearling are eating low-hanging evergreen boughs. The snow accumulated enough weight for them to reach.

I've moved this trailcam back to the horse chestnut tree. The sound of the mourning doves  are lovely, should you choose to watch! 


In the night, the deer came to scoop up some seed. You can see a pair of cat eyes in window.deer in the night

Love these winter videos. The yearling certainly appears to have a thick, warm coat. Love the eyes watching that big "bird" at the feeder.

Hello Jenn,
I always enjoy the deer videos, they are so cute. I love the mourning doves too, they are sweet birds. I hope you are all staying safe and warm. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, wishing you a happy weekend! PS, thank you for the visit and comment on my blog.

We've found a place on one of the trails we hike that we see deer just about every time. Would be fun to have a trail cam there. Love seeing what you see! Enjoy your weekend!

The Mourning Doves are indeed lovely. I think that many people take them for granted because they are so common but they are striking birds by any standards. A couple of day ago I had twenty-one in my backyard.

The deer are a treat to see close to home.

You are so lucky to be able to live among all that wildlife and see how they live.

Lovely videos of your deer. It is interesting to see them eat from the trees. I have not seen that behaviour in Sweden. But maybe they do!

I love seeing your trailcam videos Jenn! That yearling is adorable eating like that!! It was -20 here too this morning, but it's up to the minus single digits during the day which is really nice :))
