The doe will soon kick her last year son out of her group of doe’s that hang out together. She wants him gone before her next fawn or fawns are born this spring. Her daughter that is about 2 or more years old will stay with her mother in the same area’s that she lives in. The buck will move on to a different location.
WHITETAIL DEER. The mother doe is in front of the photo, the young buck( that has nubs} is in back of her. Her daughter in the background is eating grass . Photo was taken in late February.
The doe and her son from last spring are touching noses. The deer smell each other to see if they are family or belong to their group. If they are strangers they may start chasing or hitting each other.
The photos were taken in February: on a raining day.
Raining day shower
After getting a good shower, you shake your body to the left, then to the right, and shake it all around. When you are done shaking, turn your head from one side to the other side to get the water out of your ears, grin

Foods that Chickadees eat
Here is a list of some of the foods that chickadees like; suet, sunflower seeds, berries, dry-roasted unsalted peanuts, insects and spiders.
Chickadees will hold a seed in between their feet to crack it open with their bill. They also at times will use their feet to hold other foods that they eat.
When the weather is cold; Chickadees will eat a large amount of food during day light that will be metabolized; food that is broken down into waste matter, which releases into energy for their body heat, that will help them stay warm at night.
At times the birds will shiver to help stay warm. When it is cold, one of the places that some of the birds will find to stay warm at night are in tree cavities. The larger trees that are alive that have cavities, will hold the heat from the day longer then dead tree cavities.
Some smaller birds will group together in; shrubs, evergreen trees, logs, or nest boxes. By sharing their heat it will help them to save a lot of their metabolic energy.
