(adjective) inactive, silent, calm, quiet
For weeks it has been very still around here, even on the wildlife front. This weekend the barn lane became a wildlife boulevard, evidenced by the numerous turkey and deer track.
A lone deer was determined to come through the pasture and get down to the crab apple and pear trees on the side of the hill. After looking for food, it made this very pretty loop and met its own tracks to go back up the hill.
This renewed activity is causing some worry. If the deer are coming up from Wolf Creek where they have been hunkered down, the coyotes might not be far behind. With the warmer temperatures this week, we are really hoping for some significant melt-down of the snow pack.
