Can't. I still have more rocks to dig.  ;D
The deer are here. I see some. I've been seeing a lone one when I bring a load of rocks to cross a wet hole.

The little guy got cot by a coyote I think. 



When I went to the mill and walked around the building I saw just a flag running away from me into the woods.

Peter,

   I'm sorry for your loss. I really liked looking at the fox kits. I hope the rest fare better and you can get Mr. Wiley in your crosshairs real soon.

Peter,

   Great picture. I bet there was another doe nearby. I first thought the 3 here at my place last week were triplets but then saw the second doe and all 3 did try to nurse the same doe. 

   We often see 3 or 4 bedded down in the same area where the mom's left them. It is great fun watching them play and prance around.

   Deer are coming out of the woods to my house daily. Will have 4-5 every day withing bow shot range of the house. Spotted fawns running and playing. One doe this afternoon was in the creek then feeding on the steep bank between the creek and the road. Then 30-40 minutes later I looked out and a pair of does feeding around my woodshed and around the tops and limbs I have dragged down but not cut up yet. I don't know where they parked their fawns but I am sure they were close.


 That bank is awful steep but she makes it look easy to stand on.


 I need to weedeat this bank and along the creek but the deer are enjoying the growth so much I have delayed this task.


 Around my woodshed and future firewood. I wish that left deer would go ahead and eat that poison ivy on that dead ash.


 

 I love watching deer scratch their ear with their hooves.

One of the two legged neighbors straightlined a corner on the state road above the sawmill just as I was coming up the mountain, I bought my old Chevy back for $117. Her mother put me in the ditch more than once right after she got her license too. I guess my reactions are slowing :D.

There are some bats that use the shop and spend the days up under the ridge. Their poop annoys me but other than that they do keep the bugs down. This is the third year in a row where owls have moved in right about the time I'm thinking I need to move the bats along.

Saturday I had one above me while I was working, since then it has been a pair.




Look under that rag just behind the kraft paper


 



They are hiding out from one another. I noticed this afternoon there must have been a truce, everyone was panting and trying to just stay cool. Rather amazing anyone is staying in there. I'm in a respirator and making noise, dust and fumes and this whole other drama is going on around, what is my small world anyway  :D

Maybe you can put up some bat houses out in your yard, that might get them out of there.

   I should do the same thing with the bat houses. We sometimes get them here under the eaves of the house and behind drain pipes and such. I always leave them as I like the insect control aspect.

   I never get owls in my barn but wish they would come help control the mice who like to clean up the feed bins and such. We have them on the ridges all around and especially behind the house. Sometimes they start a regular conversation talking back and forth. It amazes me the different sounds they produce. I love to hear them arguing that way.

Well, it got crowded in there today. I got down to the shop about 1:30 and there were 4 owls in there. I just came up to the house and they had hung out in there all day. Its starting to feel like a Hitchcock movie  :D

Got a couple more pics of them today, one came out fairly decent. I was down to the last of the paint and just had a final coat on the hood to do, and blew it bigtime, orange peel, fisheye and tiger stripes, every possible defect, well until one of the owls looked down and pooped on it :D.





He's sitting on the veggie racetrack for the farmers market. I'll need to sand it and put a coat of poly on it before it gets used this year, the mold stripes are where the "wheels" got the wood wet and added food for the mold to get hold of. The kids get a kick out of building veggie racecars and running them down the track.

Don,
Recon the owl did not give a hoot about your paint.

Peter,
Nice bear butt!
