Birds at the Deer Carcass

A couple of months ago, our local DNR conservation warden delivered a deer carcass to the Maxville Alternative School, just down the road from where I live.   The students strung it up by the birdfeeding station - then waited and watched to see who might show up.

I've made a point of stopping at least once a week to take a look myself.

The first visitor?  A very friendly Black-capped Chickadee.
The biggest surprise?  A Dark-eyed Junco.

The most likely visitor?  A Downy Woodpecker.

Plenty of coyote tracks.  No eagles yet...
