The only ones more tired of the cold on The Orchard Compound, other than humans, may just be our hummingbirds. Their feeders freeze as fast as we put them out, so it’s pointless. Here’s to warmer days ahead. Hang in there everyone.
About 20 of these wondrous critters stopped by to say Happy New Year! They seem ready for some cold weather ahead.
A dozen or so elk, all wearing their fuzzy, winter coats, visited us on this frosty morning. One of the two young bulls was sporting an antler growing in the wrong direction. Hope it grows back properly this spring.
Our son was out cooking lunchtime salmon on his Traeger when he spotted this guy about 40-50 feet away. We didn’t share.
These three newborns acted more like goats than elk during their early morning visit. Never tire of watching them.
