might have an easier time spotting a Pigeon Guillemot than other

… is our most widespread and
adaptable mouse species, found through nearly all of North America
except the southeast and the far north. Western subspecies are mostly
terrestrial, but eastern mice are good climbers, and spend a lot of time
in trees - and sometimes on feeders.
They feed on seeds, but also
fruit, insects and certain fungi; excess food is
often collected and stored in caches for periods of food shortage or
bad weather. Nearly any cosy cavity may serve as a nest or roost - from
underground burrows to old woodpecker holes or nestboxes; these are
lined with fur, plant down and other soft materials.
Deer mice are
active all year, but largely nocturnal so infrequently seen; often the
only evidence of their presence is their tracks in the snow.
