I've reveled in watching the downy woodpecker and wrens poke at the suet outside my window. When its this cold, we all gotta help each other out.

We have been feeding avery young raccoon ..It's mom must have gotten killed..
This critter was way too young to be out on it's own..
So she does forage..But we supplement her,with 1 can of meat & kibbles ,when she is around...
SHe looks 100% better her coat is full and think and she has gained weight
We haven't seen her the last 2 days.. She must be hold up in a sleeping area She's smart too...

I do fear that she too might get killed like her mom.. My neighbor eats 'coons

As long as it ain't under your house

We have a resident fox which looked healthy and strong a month or two ago but has since lost weight and most of its hair. I haven't seen a sign of him in the last week and fear the worst. Last year a fox died under the porch in a similar spot so we've taken to calling this one the Phoenix. Time to better secure the boards under the porch.

We're filling 4 big bird feeders twice a day and 4 suet cages every other day. At 0500 it was -1. Up to 8 now.

One thing about the wicked cold, it makes the normal cold feel somewhat warm.

We feed our dogs, and they see to the birds, 'coons, groundhogs, etc.

No worries about anything dying under the porch!

I always enjoy your ride reports and outings. I especially enjoy all the photos you post. But I have to say that is insane. I'm freezing just reading your post. Stay safe.
