Last Days of Summer

September 12th and 13th were the last really warm days here. We made sure to get out for a little birding to soak it up. We encountered quite a few fall migrants in the process including a Hooded Warbler one day and Philadelphia Vireo the next. We saw numbers of Chipping Sparrows and Swainson's Thurshes. Lots of Gray Catbirds were enjoying the berries on pokeweed in Lake View. We didn't see much in a brief tour of the lakefront, but did see a Green Heron, Northern Shovelers and Blue-winged Teal. Lovely memories of warm days and passing birds.

  1. Great photo composition and cropping on Natures Beauty!

    Nice to have a few last warm days. It is finally cooling off a bit here (I think we are down to high 90's low 100's), not that I want snow, mind you, but I would like to not feel mummified three steps out the door :D
