    On the lookout for a meal it appears.
    Now I’ve got to go get some seed blocks and a bag of seed for the gang that hangs out at my place. Thing is I suspect the seed that ends up on the ground and the birds miss is what has drawn that skunk to put our place on his/her nightly feeding rounds. Not even the squirrels can get to the feeder or seed blocks but there is always some cracked corn and seed on the ground the birds have missed. During the dreaded “polar vortex” when we had good snow cover the birds will go through a 2″ x 6″ x 5″ seed block a day and I will have to refill my 8 lb squirrel proof feeder every other day.

    I’ve been trying to keep my 30-40 winter resident songbirds alive during this prolonged extreme cold winter (today -35C wc-45C). They scatter a lot of seed when flying outbound. The ground is littered, covered by fresh snow, littered again etc. Jackrabbits love it – and deer occasionally pass through. Had to fence my garden and fruit trees. Come spring melt the seeds will cover the ground, I wait til they are dry, and then shop vac the ground so the grass can grow. Small price to pay for the pleasure the critters provide during the winter in the Great White North.

      My mower blows the stuff away and then cuts down what ever plants the missed seeds brings forth so they can’t seed and spread. However my seed blocks are over a bed of river rock and we have to occasionally clean that mess up,
