Cemetery Wildlife

Our cemetery is home to a variety of wildlife:  deer, geese, turkey, ground hogs, hawks, racoons and other small mammals like rabbits and squirrels (not to mention song birds).   When you visit, feel free to observe and record wildlife, but please DO NOT FEED the fauna.   Some photos follow below.   More can be found in the Photo Gallery.   

These days, cemeteries are full of wildlife.   The following link to an article from Voice-of-America explains why:  Life Meets Death in the Graveyard

And for cemetery visitors who have an interest in birdwatching, it is worth noting that, according to the American Birding Association, cemetery birding has been a “thing” for quite some time.   The link follows:  Cemetery Birding — It’s a Thing!
