Ellis Bird Farm Blog
Since we cleaned up all the EBF gardens this fall, we thought we'd supplement the diet of our resident snowshoe hares with a few pellets. The deer scarfed all the outside offerings so we decided to place a little pellet pile inside the Grain Elevator (the hares love being in this old building) and use a trail cam to see which creatures availed themselves of the treats. So far, we've recorded the hares, flying squirrels, red squirrels and so many adorable little deer mice. Rather than eating the food, it appears that they just pack it all away. So industrious!
