Cubs, Fawns And Some Other Visitors To My Backyard
The heat of summer has returned here in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The birds and other critters visiting my feeders and backyard have dwindled. However, I still had some visitors here in my backyard. Last week mommy bear returned with her two cubs. They helped themselves to the corn I put out for the deer and turkey.
Mom’s eyes follow me as she allows me to watch and photograph her offspring. She is always looking out for the cubs and I am sure would not let me take one step off of my deck without jumping to their defense.
A few days earlier a younger bear, I think it was a yearling that was just turned away by it’s mother showed up at my yard and also tried to get some free bird seed. It couldn’t reach the feeders either.
As I said above the have been a lot less birds visiting my feeders. The house and goldfinches have not been seen in a weeks. The sparrows and mourning doves feed early and there have been no robins in the yard. I haven’t seen the indigo bunting, Carolina wren or towhee either. The only regular visitors have the blue jays, starlings and the woodpeckers.
At night I hear the raccoons and foxes, and I smell the skunks but the summer heat has definitely decreased the animals that visit my backyard . Spring is always the busiest season of the year, but I am hoping I still get some visitors in my backyard that I can share with my blog followers. Here is a link to a gallery on my website with some more photographs of the animals that visited my backyard. Backyard critters July 10 to July 23 2020.
