I was surprised this morning to already see a RC Kinglet. They normally do not arrive until well into November. A gentleman I see at the park some said he spotted a Golden Crowned Kinglet last week. We have not even had a first frost yet and daytime temps this week are in the 70's. Makes me wonder on winter weather prediction for this year.
Late this afternoon I was heading out the door to take the dog for a walk and noticed something on in the carport. I couldn't believe it there in the shade...a copperhead. About 14-16 inches in length but not much girth so probably a young one. Too bad but it had to go. I just can't risk the dog getting a bite.
