I identified an Eastern Phoebe this weekend!! If I had only had my camera close by, I could have gotten a super good photo.

And I had a CUTE encounter with a Brown-headed Nuthatch! I was standing by one of my new bluebird houses, taking photos of the afternoon sun shining across the tops of some trees and . . .

. . . in the back of my mind, I kept hearing this cute little beep beep beep. Finally, I looked over at the birdhouse and this little Nuthatch was poking his head out of the hole, beeping at me. My camera was in my hand, but was down by my sides. So I very slowly turned the camera towards the birdhouse and just hoped that I got the shot, which ta da! I did! Look closely at the right hand side of the birdhouse.

Here he is after he flew out of the house and into the tree.

Beautiful Fall Colors Come Early!!!

We had an early frost last week - before Halloween!!! which is really early for this area. I had to run around and cover plants on 2 nights when the temps were in the low 30's!!!! And consequently, we are now getting beautiful Fall Colors super early this year. We don't usually see these kinds of sights until right after Thanksgiving. So today I had to run around and take pictures because a rain is coming and once that happens, a lot of the leaves will be blown off and washed out. Here are the results:
