I heard the chickens squawking a little while ago so I went out to see what was up and found this pretty gray ratsnake chilling under the fan in their coop. I let him go in the woods behind the old milkhouse, once I finally unwrapped him from my arm, haha.
Went out to check on the fawn again this morning and I couldn’t find her anywhere. But I did spy what looked very much like where a big deer had been walking through the thick vegetation in the area I last saw her! Hooray! :D
Thanks again for all the good vibes, lovely peeps! <3 Here’s a few more pics I took of her the other day.
Celebrating Corn On The Cob Day is simple and fun, cook up some corn on the cob and enjoy it, just like the adorable bat in the photo! Also remember to thank the bats who keep the insects away from the yummy corn! Bats are worth over $1 billion dollars to the corn industry!
Farm Workers Day is a day to celebrate and be grateful for all the hard work that farmers do to keep fresh food coming! It can also be seen as a day to thank the bats for helping the farmers! Due to their insect eating abilities, bats can help save up to $53 billion dollars a year on pesticides in the agricultural industry!
Helped this cutie out today! He was crossing my road and heading towards my pond so I scooted him away from the road and into the pasture and closer to the pond, much to his dismay. Beautiful snapper! <3
The bluebirds are working hard feeding their clutch. They must make, I don’t know, HUNDREDS, if not more, trips a day with bugs for the hungry babies. I’m glad to see they’re using one of the new boxes we built this past fall.
I checked on the fawn an hour or so before dusk and she hadn’t moved from where she bedded down this morning. Didn’t appear to be dehydrated or in distress but I’ve called and left a message at a local wildlife rehab center in the event she’s still out there in the morning. Hopefully her momma will find her tonight. Prayers and good thoughts appreciated. <3
