Wild life abounds on this end of the farm. A pair of eagles nest 1/4 mile away. Sightings are fairly common until February at nesting time and on thru the summer when several daily sightings can be expected. Deer are in the fields morning and evening. Coyotes are seen often in the fields below the house hunting mice. Bird watching in pretty interesting as the hawks also hunt the fields. Since we are at the very end of Martin Ridge it feels like you are almost in the sky at night. With no interference from artificial lighting star gazing is pretty unbelievable. As you stare at the vastness of the night sky it is pretty well a guarantee that you will be serenated with the night sounds if owls and coyotes. Don't forget your binoculars and zoom lenses. If you are somewhat of a nature lover you will surly fall in love with Martin Ridge.
