Monthly Journal – November, 2016

It’s been a warm, dry fall so far.  With the drought, birds and critters have appreciated the water in birdbaths and the pond.   But the drought was broken as reported in our previous post, and we have started hearing toads again at night.

A flock of several hundred grackles passed through a few days ago and we have started seeing Ruby-crowned Kinglets.  Surely colder weather is not far off.

Monthly Journal – January, 2016

Again our monthly journal is mostly about birds. In addition to these colorful visitors, we saw many Blue Jays, Red-winged Blackbirds, and Red-tailed Hawks in January.  The weather continues to be unseasonably warm, and we are seeing territorial disputes already beginning;  particularly Eastern Bluebirds, Brown-headed Nuthatches and American Robins.  And we are on the lookout for early hummingbird arrivals.
