Day 261 - 18th September 2015 - Hermit Thrush, Sunrise and Red-Breasted Nuthatch

Here we are at Friday once again. The weeks go by quickly. Some I'm happier to see the end of than others. Looks like another fine day in the making. Some things to finish off today. These evening have to get everything ready to take with us on Saturday. I'd like to get on the road early, but we'll see how that works out. House sitter is booked so everything is falling into place.
Another beautiful day. The fog lifted quickly and the sun shone brightly, gentle breeze - perfect fall weather. Hopefully we have more days like this. Alas, the days are growing shorter. Daylight comes later and nightfall earlier. That's the one thing I miss most about the summer months those early mornings, coffee on the deck listening to the birds wake up. These days it's become quieter in the backyard. Soon we'll start fill the bird feeders and enjoy those that come for that. The Hummingbirds have left. Their feeder remains out for a while as an offering to those who are passing through on the trip to warmer winter climates. Hoping fall will last a long time before the unmentionable sets in.
The Hermit Thrushes were active yesterday morning. Several of them around.

I was at the right place at the right time as I left for my walk - the sun was shining through the trees.
Through the fog it glows like a fire.
Red-Breasted Nuthatch.

Enjoy your day!
