Caw, Caw

I toss a little corn and sometimes, apples and kale, 
all so I can watch the creatures of the woods that may 
be looking for a free handout.  
 However, I completely forgot about the crows.
At first, just a few, OK, that's not so bad.
 The crows did start their cawing, 
calling in their families.   
" Hey, family, there's free food here.
Come and get it!!!! " 
and their families came....and
 their friends, and their neighbors...
they came flying in and out to ' caw ' in more.
Finally, they all left, making room for the
family I really wanted to watch.
Thanks for coming, dear deer~
I've been waiting to see your friendly faces.

Normally, we don't feed too late into the season, but this already has been such a harsh winter that we want to be sure the deer get enough warmth around their bones to strengthen them for the running they are going to have to do to outrun the wolves.
Good luck to them.  There aren't many Whitetails left in our area, thanks to the wolf problem created by some 
' not so smarts' out there.  Nuff said.
I wonder if they could do anything about those 
disease-ridden crows???

Have a wonderful week.
I'm off to try to see some sustainable beauty in the woods.
Nuff griping.

Thanks for stopping in and making my day a good one.

That sure was a crowd of crows...I am glad they left some for the deer. You have a kind heart to think of the little critters. I know they appreciate it.♥

we saw one whitetail deer near the back forty today. I always get excited to see any kind of wild life on our chore days at the ranch.

What wolves.... we don't have a problem, because I haven't seen any wolves!!! (tongue in cheek) We hear them howling in the summer!!! They're out there, and the packs are getting larger and larger!!!

How sweet it is, beautiful shots. I did think of Alfred Hitchcock and the BIRDS.
It is always a thrill seeing the deer.
Amazing the ignorance sometime, in trying to improve on nature.

U B sweet and I know the wild ones appreciate it.

Love ya! Stay warm.

We feed the deer too. Life is hard enough. You have to help each other where you can. Stay warm.

Those crows!!! What a system they have.

We also have a few deer coming in for a hand out, but only three to five crows at a time.

I always have questions. How do you know that the crows are sick? And that the wolves eat the deer? Yikes you are so smart.

We have them here too and let me tell you - I don't like them either.

I do like the crows--even though they are loud and bossy birds.
