Day 241 - 28th August 2016 - Reflections, Flowers and a Palm Warbler

Stars are all out, air feels cool this morning. A very nice start to the day. Once again no rain in sight. Larry's going to cook a turkey while I'm at work today - will be easy meals this week, since I'm off Monday then have a long stretch of days on. It seems a deer visited our garden the other night, some of our swiss chard and beans are missing. Obviously not a local one as they all know the rules - wait til the apples are ready!
Saturday I got out for a quick roam, thick fog over the lake but it cleared rapidly. A few birds around - Common Yellowthroat, Palm Warblers, Chickadees, Song and Swamp Sparrows. It was a beautiful morning - wish I had more time. Always seems I'm grasping a few minutes here and there for birding, never really spending any quality time enjoying nature these days. Oh well it is what it is and I'll get it figured out by next year. Maybe it will just make me appreciate nature even more. So we took a drive to Upper Clyde to visit friends last evening but they weren't home. Did see a few birds and a couple of deer on our travels including a Red-Tailed Hawk.
