In reply to Lisa K:
Yesterday, while searching for the Makov Rescue Station pond (where we used to see swans, ducks, storks, deer, etc etc) I could only find a stark, frozen, "concrete" (the word that sprang to mind at the time) pond... quite desolate-looking... but I ventured into rollback and to my astonishement found an OTTER frolicking on it. The following is the result of several hours' work because of the constraints recording from rollback on "this", my working, laptop.
BTW, I checked the donation info and it's the same as for the previous pond and bird feeder.
Didn't have to wait long for the Wild Boar, KORKY, it looks a sweetie but we wouldn't like to get on the wrong side of it and the deer certainly kept their distance
Here was a good example of a deer's prehensile tongue, I was reading that (in relation to the Starr Ranch Mule Deer) that's how they can access difficult vegetation:

Thank god I got the ID right. I'd hate to incur the wrath of scylla.
The deer and boar are amazingly tame around the lovely people who provide all the food, if not happy meeting each other.

Oh dear! I just copied you, Korky - maybe it's a special domestic breed for all I know

This Robin had been in before daycam but s/he had such a white browline in mono that I couldn't confidently call it a Robin. Here, s/he perched there studying something for ages!
This morning's feeder tender gave us some nice waves and had a tame deer beside her:
A Jay for KORKY
It picked a walnut half that was more wall than nut, teehee - I put that caption on but concluded, sadly, that it would only waste viewers' time & effort to read it

They are absolutely dedicated to their cause and put out a lot of food each day.
Thanks for the jay scylla!
Lovely videos Scylla - so enjoyed them. Thank you,
The jay just spooked itself - a bird will often do that. - just doesn't make sense

21 February (I missed the clip altogether)
How embarrassing, but I'm used to it... I thought "Bullfinch?" but apparently not and I can't find a picture of this one - I do forget easily if I don't see a bird often within a short period. This was lunchtime:
This is a cheat - the 2 birds are snapped a second apart - the Jay scarpered in a blur as the GSW landed aggressively:
