Mammal Land

Did you know Northern Cardinals are the last to leave the feeders each night least at my house. However, the next wave of visitors start to arrive a couple hours after sunset. This year we've experienced up to eleven species of mammals stopping by the bird feeder.   Recently a pair of Gray Foxes have been stopping by on a regular basis, including tonight..10-28. Prior to these two Gray Foxes, the only one I had ever seen was a dead one up at Lake Onota in Pittsfield.  

Below are a few photos of  feeder visitors....
