The natural world around me, both a few steps and a few miles, away.

Out of My Rear Window 8-14-11
It's a very quiet day at the feeders. When I first got up, there wasn't much going on at all. Then, just after I came in from putting out food, I noticed activity in my front yard. Out of my front window, this is what I saw.
It didn't take them long to find their way to the back. First a couple joined the usual mad rush of squirrels that occurs whenever the food goes out.
Some weren't so brave, and stood around surveying the situation.
But, eventually got brave and joined the feast.
Many never did get brave enough, and stayed in the side yard.
It didn't make any difference, though. By the time they left the yard, there wasn't a thing left under the feeder. I'll give it some time, and then go out and put more feed down. They're beautiful birds, but, in this number, a real pain in the neck. They're big eaters, and even bigger poopers. Not to mention that the fact that they're back means that the young are flying, and that's a sign of Fall.
