Day 304 - 31st October 2014 - Reflections, Basketball, Juncos, Blue Jays and Grackles

Happy Halloween and good bye October. Feels a bit cooler this morning, but the stars are all out. Temperature is +2.5. Was nice to sleep in again this morning, think I could get used to this. It's going to be back to purging and cleaning for me and roaming the hood. Today we'll be more careful when we go, first day of deer hunting season and sometimes they are just a tad wonky in the excitement to be out there.
Wow, Thursday felt more like September instead of the end of October. What a great day. The birds weren't long finding the seeds in the feeder, but they were mostly Blue Jays, Grackles and Mourning Doves. Had one Junco drop by and some Purple Finches took one look and decided there was no room for them. Oh yes and at least two squirrels - which spent some time fighting in one of the feeders. Had a great walk first thing in the morning, but once again it's quiet, everyone is seeing birds along the coast but here in the woods they've moved out except for the feeder birds.  Finally finished off the living room yesterday and got the bowling alley started. Still too many rooms left to do a count down!
 Great morning on the lake.
 Song Sparrow.
 I like the wispy grasses.
Creeping around the neighbour's yard.
 One of our resident Blue Jays, sure we'll be seeing lots of them in the next few months.
 Harriet the Grackle - they really are beautiful when the sun hits them and all that irridesent color shows.
 First Junco of the season.
 He was hanging out on the deck.

Just a leaf floating along.

Enjoy your day!
