Lexi with a snack. (©Aura Stauffer)
Same church, different pew, as they say...Aura checked on Lexi Friday, who was in a larger white pine within the same grove as the past three weeks, although perched only about four feet off the ground.
She was also holding a bag lunch, but for once it wasn't a Peromyscus (white-footed or deer mouse) but what appeared to be a meadow vole. Aura and I had just been talking on Thursday about how Lexi seemed to be targeting Peromyscus, even down in the valley where we'd expect voles to be more common. Maybe she overheard us, or maybe Thursdays are Vole Night at the saw-whet bistro.
