This last week with the colder weather setting in both Bob and Seemore has returned to the cabin. Bob sat on the large tree stump meowing as I let Gracie outside. Well until Gracie heard him then he ran off. Seemore comes out in the morning as he uses the heat from the sun to warm himself.
A squirrel digs in the rocks collecting treasures as two smaller squirrels play with one another. What a delight to watch.
As I watched the squirrels I began to ponder the thought: why have the squirrels arrived and what is the message. Where they telling me I still need to gather more food, water or wood for the winter or to have more play time? I believe the message is all of the above.
I do need to make sure I have plenty of food, water and wood for the winter along with more play time.
As the seasons change so do the animals. As each night approaches the sounds I hear also change. At night the owls are out where in the daylight hours I hear more hawks, woodpeckers etc. I have noticed the woodpeckers are around more in early spring and late fall. What I truly enjoy about the woodpeckers is they will continue pecking as I stand underneath them. They do not seem as frightened by people as the other birds.
I didn’t see any moose this last summer where the summer prior I heard the moose nightly along with being chased once. The coyotes come out more with the full moon or shall I say I hear them howl more. With the full moon brings a whole different energy.
