Melody Provost Holmes has been seeing a number of different critters here in the U.P. lately. The deer sure have been moving around, so be sure you watch for them if your driving. They’re hungry and are showing up more and more in fields, looking for food.
Same thing with the birds, starting with the Baltimore Oriole Melody captured. Such a beautifully colored bird and this time of year is looking for something sweet for dinner. Lots of folks put out an orange half and that attracts these beauties.
Turkey Vultures are not something you see up in the tree that often, usually you spot them when they’re circling in the air overhead. Nice capture, Melody shares with us, today. Not the prettiest bird, but so interesting!
And last but not least, the Sandhill Cranes. You can usually hear the prehistoric like sounds of these birds, long before you see them. These large birds like to take to the fields, also, where they find their meals to give them the energy they need to move about.
It’s sure nice to see all these critters back here UP North again. Today’s video is a Baltimore Oriole sitting in the tree and singing. These birds have such a unique and beautiful song!
