We have noticed increased activity at our bird feeders. Bob commented that the platform feeder was drained in one day. Yesterday I was sitting at the table in the sunroom and in the course of about two minutes I saw the following birds: Bluejay, Goldfinches, White breasted nuthatch, Black Capped Chickadee, Hairy Woodpecker, Downy Woodpecker, Tufted Titmouse, Red Bellied Woodpecker. I went for a walk later in the day and when I walked into the kitchen I saw a Cooper’s Hawk sunning himself on our deck railing. . I got a photograph and will post on the blog. He kept yawning. Just a few minutes ago I saw that Cooper’s Hawk flying through the woods. He landed on the branches of a big oak tree.Bob cut back the roses and buddleia last night. He took out the zinnias that have been hosting the relatively small butterfly population this summer and fall.
I saw old Autumn in the misty morn stand shadowless like silence, listening to silence.
