The weather has been cold here. It was 36 degrees when I walked downtown today. There is still some snow and ice around. I put sunflower seeds out for the birds. Not all birds will come to a bird feeder, so I put a board down in the front of the house and put some seeds on it. I noticed that the seeds were disappearing quickly after I put them out, but I didn't see any birds. I put some more out and watched. I caught the culprits. It was the deer. I hope the seeds are OK for them to eat. They sure liked them.
