Had an interesting bird encounter Saturday at The Big House with a strange Mourning Dove that landed in the end zone and tried to hide in the blue paint for some reason I’ll never know!
There are official signs of fall and one of them is the arrival of the first Dark-eyed Junco! I thought I saw one a couple evenings ago but wasn’t sure.
Black-capped Chickadees are another one of those overachiever birds. They work hard for their food and energy.
Either we had a Chipping Sparrow nest nearby or I guess it could just be passing through because now we have a juvenile Chipping Sparrow on the deck! It just showed up a few days ago and may be gone already now.
