Found the shell of this turtle off the side of the road/ river trail.
Found under some tin sheets. It was 59 degrees Fahrenheit and sunny.
I have big snag in my yard that I've attached gourds too. I hope to attract Purple Martins. A few days after I put the gourds up I saw a marked increase of activity around the snag. Most of the openings are facing NxNortheast.
On the upper reaches of the snag, 30', I placed a house, facing South, I hope to attract a Kestrel or a Screech Owl.
I want to find out, if this plays out, if Starlings & Sparrows will stay away because of the threat of the Raptor. I don't think that PMs would be pray but S&S would be.
Found under a log by Sir Richard Gibbons.
Rustys have been around this location all winter.
