Yes! They have started to arrive! Grackle, Red-wing & Cowbirds are at my feeders! The Rusty's seem to have flown the coop. There are also 4 Fox Sparrow now. In need to get out and see that snowy owl one more time.
I had a magical experience today. I was standing outside a store chatting with a friend, we were just soaking in the glorious sun. As always I was glancing up at the sky, it was a deep blue with a few fluffy white clouds. I heard a Red-tailed Hawk call, I looked up at him, and noticed a total of 6 Red-tailed Hawks ketteling together. Breathtaking. I truly know WHY I bird, they fill my life with such beauty.
On my birding rounds, I found a Great Horned Owl nest!!!
