The great thing about having snow on the ground is we get to see all the footprints that wildlife makes. Deer prints are the most common, as well as Coyote and Fox but last night Waldy saw a Skunk in the quonset so we know these new markings are him/her. His markings are different being short and close to the ground, he had to plow thru the snow. Also caught the Skunk and a Fox on the wildlife camera.
The ‘Bee People’ built a fence and brought our bee hives back this past week.

It is kind of neat seeing all the different animal prints in the snow. So what happens to the bees in the winter time? The weather is cool here but no snow to talk of yet. The skunk doesn’t bother Boots or vice versa?
Winter survival is a team effort for honey bees. Together, they huddle, shiver, and feed on honey to keep warm until spring.
Could the mystery prints be a Bobcat?
I think they are too small. It looks like a few prints rather than 1 big one to me.
Will that snow stay for the winter? I’ve been back from time away for deer hunting and no, we are empty handed again this year. We’ve got snow that looks like it is here to stay. Since late Sept it has been cloudy most of the time and wet, rain or snow showers. My boat isn’t dried out yet and not covered for the winter, might be a losing cause. My work at the cemetery is finished for the season, just the last meeting on Thursday so it is back to a sort of retirement again. Oh one more thing, I hope Peppy isn’t looking for a winter over spot in your hut!
