    We are getting first truely cold snap with ground covering snow. Racoons and oppossums are going to stay close to dens for a couple days then regardless of conditions are going to provide and uptick in bird losses due to predation if cooping systems not secure enough.

    Mine are locked up tight at night, and My gander and dogs are on alert during the day.
