Birds, birds, and more birds
It just amazes me on all the different types of birds that life at the Inn. My wife Tammy is very active with them to say the very lest. On an average we go through about 20 pounds of seed a week. That right a week. For the longest time I thought it must be the raccoons or some other animal eating all the seed but to my amaze as I watched the bird more closely it was the birds. From time to time a raccoon will try to get to the feeders but with no luck. As mentioned in the last posting in The life as a Innkeeper I mentioned we painted the exterior wood on the Inn. My wife was very careful to make sure we did not damage the bird nests and we where forced to clean and paint around them. Let me tell you that is a task of it own. The mother and father birds would dive bomb us to protect the chicks. We have had three new animals arrival last week at the Inn a mother cat and two kittens. The mother showed up first to make sure thing where safe and on day two she brought the kittens. Being the animal lovers that we are with in a day Tammy had a cat house and all the little goodies that go with it set up in the barn. Do not get me wrong we needed some hungry cats. Like any farm we have mice and field molds. Since the arrival of the cat they have brought us many gifts (if you know what I mean) to the back door around 8 mice and over a dozen of the field molds. Needless to say they are part of the family now. Other animals that consider the Inn home are two mother raccoons one of the mothers and three cub coons live in the bard while the other mother and one cub lives in a old tree just outside the main door of the dinning room. Must guests enjoy them as well as the cats. This blog category is truly for Tammy and I hope she will start writing in it. She truly is the one that takes care of all the little animals and knows all the different types of birds at the Inn.
