Refilling my cup of coffee this morning,I looked out the window to see a doe and a yearling buck enjoying my new bird feeder in the backyard. I thought I had outsmarted them: a new location, higher up, harder to reach the seed unless you're a little bird. Not even a challenge for them. They didn't touch my pots of colorful flowers on the patio -- they just go for that bird seed. What to do?! I love to feed the birds, but I can't afford to support my four-legged friends' unfortunate addiction to the same. This is putting a crimp in my birdwatching.
Next time I'll grab a picture. They are bold.
