A long time since the last post but I have been very busy doing some long overdue renovations in the house. The weather has been pretty much yucky heat and humidity wise so it has been a good time for some indoor projects. I tried to go out for a bit this morning but it was not long before a light drizzle and thunder and lightning began. Time to head inside.
There were a lot of birds out when I first arrived, a male Summer Tanager, a pair of Great Crested Flycatchers, a female Rose-breasted Grosbeak and several more birds were all devouring some really tiny acorns on a tree. They are not like regular acorns and the birds love them.
There seems to be a bit of energy among the animals today. The deer were out early roaming. They destroyed my neighbors grape vine late yesterday afternoon. When I arrived home from the park this morning, the raccoon was coming home late and just climbing the tree where it calls home.
Lots of birds at the feeders and in the dogwoods. A female Summer Tanager comes daily to flit around in the bird batch. She really seems to enjoy it.
