Pine Siskins (and deer carcass)

This morning along the "chickadee trail" east of Henry Marsh there were a few Pine Siskins, Purple Finches, American Goldfinch, Dark-eyed Junco, Golden-crowned Kinglets, and the usual Chickadees and Nuthatches. (the birdfeeders aren't up yet, but the birds know the spots)

At the north side of cell 4 at the Bracebridge Ponds there was a fresh deer carcass which hadn't been there yesterday afternoon. Although we didn't see any bear tracks in the area, the carcass still had a fair bit of meat on it, so best to be cautious if walking the trail there. It looked like two deer had fallen through the thin ice in cell 4, one well out from shore. Perhaps it got tired in a struggle to get back to shore, and then was attacked by coyotes/wolves. Several Crows were helping themselves to the venison, but no other scavengers were seen nearby. (all cells were frozen over again yesterday, although it is very thin ice)
