According to the newspaper, a bald eagle has been sighted in the area. I haven't seen one yet.
Yesterday, on the way home from Wallyworld, I saw three red-tailed hawks and a red-shouldered hawk. Then a wild turkey flew up out of the ditch in front of the car in front of me. The turkey made it up and across without getting hit. Yay. Then I was almost home when I rounded a corner where I'd noticed a dead squirrel earlier. Sure enough, a black vulture was making a meal. I rolled up slowly and the vulture took off safely. Then he circled back around and I almost hit him. He flew over the hood of my car and went back to his brunch. Silly bird. No gray squirrel is worth dying for.
We've begun raking leaves. Should be finished by mid-December - depending on how fast Oberon drops his leaves.
Oberon is a huge white oak tree that was probably around for the Civil War, maybe for the Revolution. At some point his center trunk snapped off and so he spread out in other directions. I'm told this is called a fairy oak - hence the name Oberon.
The hummingbirds are gone for the winter. I still have to take the feeder down.
I'm tired of marketing. (As of last night.) I know I don't have time to be tired of it because when I stop, so do the sales. I'll be better after some sleep. I am truly thankful for all the friends who've been such a help - tweeting and retweeting and sharing posts and liking posts. :hugs:
What's on your this-n-that line up today?
