SUMMER OF 2017 VISITORS TO HABITAT
Summer of 2017 did not have a lot of activity. Visitors were few by numbers but many different ones. The Barred Owls most active visitors. They were very active for about 3 weeks as the fledglings learned to hunt and feed themselves.
Baldface hornets built a very large nest over the summer. they were a very active visitor to the habitat. BALDFACED HORNET Link to information about.
Wild Turkeys are regular visitors to the habitat and the neighborhood. Don’t see much of them in the gardens too much other activity.
White-tailed Deer very plentiful in the area. Two town forests and a large wet area behind us.
Lots of Chipmunks in the habitat. Regular visitors to the bird feeders.
Not many Grey Squirrels this year. They are usually regular visitors, Pitbull seems to keep them away.
Only one frog in the garden pool this summer. We have had as many as a hundred or so. We called it Frogy. The last couple of weeks or so Frogy is gone and we have seen a smaller one.
Garter snakes are regular visitors to the habitat and gardens. Lots of good things for them to eat. Not many other snakes are visitors to the habitat. I am sure if we went into the backwoods we would find lots of other snakes.
Tobacco Hornworms. The ones you see are the only ones that visited us this summer.
As the summer winds down we are seeing the results of the habitat activity. Will be posting on some of the specific things that have taken place this summer with our visitors.
As usual comments and subscribers are welcome. Hope you all have a great day.
