Jack, Annie, New Wildlife - UPDATE September 29, 2017

As bear visits wind down here, we heard that Jack again visited the feeder 9 miles away. I don’t know why he left here to go there, but last evening he ate 10 pounds of peanuts in the shell and 3 pounds of sunflower seeds.Annie and her cubs 9/5/17Annie and her cubs 9/5/17

As I wrote that, 11-year-old Bow’s 2-year-old daughter Rachel stopped by.

Meanwhile, bears are being replaced by gray foxes (a pair hunting at dusk) and by the first mink I have seen in months.

Herring gulls are temporarily replaced by a flock of crows that will migrate themselves in a month or two.

We haven’t heard a gunshot for maybe two weeks.
