Definitely a lull in bird activity however there are a few indications that birds are beginning to sense it is getting close to migration time. Over the last couple of days I have begun seeing Redstarts coming to the disappearing fountain. I have not seen any around the house since spring.
Deer activity is steadily increasing. The does are beginning to bring the fawn to the feeding sight on a regular basis now. They are so cute. I watch out the window and laugh as the fawns jump and paw at squirrels that come up trying to steal a bit of corn.
One of the younger bucks comes up and tries to eat all the food first. The does however have become quite aggressive toward him particularly if a fawn is present.
