We received a call this afternoon that there was a dead deer on our lane. E walks that lane every morning and it wasn’t there this morning. We went to check it out.
As I have mentioned before I have seen more dead deer this year than ever before. But this one was, although sad, not upsetting. It died a peaceful death. There was no visable reason for its death, Whatever, the deer was beautiful.
We put it on a tarp and carried it deeper into the forest where the eagles, and vultures could have a feast. Circle of life and all that. Maybe if the eagles have some venison they will leave the pretty geese, who are nesting near me, alone.
This living on the nature channel has been quite the learning curve for me. Eight years ago, the idea that I would touch a dead deer, or then carry it to feed eagles was, well, to put it mildly .. unlikely….
There was something going on in the waters in front of us all day. Seagulls, scoters, and eagles, all feeding in the middle of the channel….. there was definitely some fish there of a sort. Herring???
I do hope our friends are treated to a real show when they are here. It’s one thing for me to tell you that I looked out the window and an eagle was swimming in front of the house. quite another to see
it for yourself
