...and later on with the faint grinding sound of Grits, the birds fly North.  :D
I'm thinking......

I didn't notice until today that there is a second hummingbird sitting on the feeder. That one is an Anna's.

I don't have a photo but a bird of prey took a hare in an open trail in the last couple of days. I am saying goshawk because I have seen them catch grouse. There were rabbit tracks and no ground predator track. There was an impact area on thin crusted snow and lots of fur in small chunks around. So it was lifted off the ground to where ever for someone's lunch. ;D

Thanks for the link doctorb.

Perhaps it is a contagious and the hawk caught it from the deer. :D

Here's a link to white whitetail deer
http://senecawhitedeer.org/
As a past meatcutter I processed one of these in the late eighties, only one I've ever seen. Back then they suspected it may have been from past shelling practice by the Army, not sure if it's been clarified now and didn't have time to read it.

Well, that didn't take long:

My grandfather shot 2 or 3 albino white tails. I have a photo of one hanging with some regular deer at his hunting camps on Serpentine Lake. Camps are still there after 60 years.

Warped-

My hunter friend - who I know well and is the only hunter permitted to hunt on my property - told me he once shot an albino deer.  This was not on my land, although I did see an albino deer a few years ago.  Anyway, he said that the meat was very atypical for a whitetail and it did not have the usual taste of deer.  Has that been your experience?

To be honest, I don't eat much venison, maybe try a piece every few years. Just a weird hang up, also pass out giving blood 70-80%, bet on it. I've also never actually field dressed a deer, but I've done plenty on the cutting block. I swear some guys used a chain saw! Corn, turds, full bladders, and various other things that I guess just turned me off.
     With that said, it was a doe, and once the hide was off there was no difference visually, in texture or smell. I remember the guy's and their young son who brought it in said it ate the same as any. They shot them often, so I'm guessing they tasted the same. They're actually in a fenced in area where you needed special permit to get in. A lottery, maybe? While it was certainly white, it wasn't as snow white as the ones in that I linked to. Could of been from what they dragged it through. Just to be clear though, they aren't albinos, I've never seen one of those.
     Just to redeem myself that I'm not a complete sissy, I remember this one deer around 1992. Often, when they take a slug in the torso they get down and rub it in mud, grass and dirt (so I've been told) to pack the wound. Well, when I dropped the hide, which had no hole, I found one of these healed over messes. The smell! Almost knocked me over. Then you have the healed over broken legs that look like clubs and a rusty broken off broad head in the hinds once. Poor guys go through a lot. But, I still hunt and take my son who loves it........I'm just very careful to never shoot one! LOL!
    Sorry for the long post but I've been down and under the weather.
