There has been a birdhouse attached to a fence post for decades now. It is unused except for that one winter when we had a glorious time with the chickadees. Just the roof though.
Heather put some peanut butter on the roof, which became just another attractant for the jays.
But not just the jays. There are two sparrows and one junco in the next image.
Cottage country is red squirrel country. Reds are smaller than the grays and blacks of our more southerly urban areas. They are quicker of foot, quite feisty, and don't mind scolding two-legged animals when they are not amused with us.
Here one is riding the bike, or so I like to think.
There was also a visit from a chipmunk.
I did see two deer over the week but didn't get a shot. But I did manage to photograph this little fellow.
I guess that about does it for wildlife. Now what?
Well, here's what ... sort of. I mentioned the winter of the chickadees up above and found this post from 10 years ago. You can see that we had some close and wonderful encounters including one eating on the top of my head: https://anvilcloud.blogspot.com/2008/12/with-our-chickadees.html .
