Red-backed Vole

Red-backed Vole

A common visitor on North Lookout, Red-backed Voles (Myodes gapperi) are mostly active at night, but can be active during the day.  They do not hibernate.  Most of the time, they stay close to fallen logs or rocks.  Red-backed voles are omnivores, and their diet changes with the seasons.

Mourning Dove

Mourning Dove

The Mourning Dove (Zenaida macroura) is the most common dove in North America. Often, it is too large for feeders and instead perches on a nearby branch, choosing to pick seeds off the ground as it pleases.

This one was found perched near the Hawk Mountain feeders, puffing out its feathers to insultate itself and stay warm.
