Genesis 1:25

Wildlife Abound

  • Birds: The property is a bounty for bird watchers. Many varieties of our winged friends can be spotted: bluebirds, cardinals, buntings, downy, red bellied, and pileated woodpeckers just to name a few.
  • Butterflies: Several varieties of butterflies feast on the nectar of various flowering shrubs surrounding the ponds and waterfalls. They are indeed a delight.
  • Frogs: If you are lucky, when the sun goes down, our pond frogs start tuning up for their nightly performance that includes some of the wildest and melodic sounds that you will ever hear in St. Louis!
  • Coyote & Deer: There are some coyote on the property but, as they are nocturnal, they are rarely seen. Their mournful howls, however, can often be heard at night. Although deer can be a challenge – as they are foraging animals who enjoy eating our landscaping plants – our plentiful herd of white-tail deer are some of God’s most graceful creatures. We are also blessed with lots of raccoons and possums, and we do see a few snakes (mostly harmless).
