Wildlife in the Window- UPDATE February 29, 2020

In the window by my desk, the wildlife is Streak who stopped by a couple days ago after an absence of 9 days, displacing Stripe who we didn't see that day. Mink streakMink streakStreak was good to pause at the window and lift her head to show me who she is before making a pig of herself. Now it's been no mink for two days in a row. Whoops, Stripe just came in the window at a couple minutes to 8. She even included a piece of flounder in her meal. She's still coming back for piece after piece of bologna--5 so far at 8:10 PM. We'll see how hungry she is after a her absence. Nice to see her. Banjo was last seen 20 days ago.

Wildlife in the living room window are deer, hungry deer, wondering when somebody will get up and put food out. Deep snow like this winter is hard on deer. We didn't keep them waiting.

Altogether, at 80, these animals in the window make me think of Patti Page singing 'How much is that doggie in the window.' How do you get a song out of your mind?

For the Black Bear Field Study Courses, there is a window of opportunity. Things happen. There are now 7 openings: 3 in Class 1--July 5-8; 3 in Class 2 July 12-15, and 1 in Class 3, July 19-22. Spring is almost here. I'm looking forward to the fun of the courses.

Thank you for all you do.
