A Chipping Sparrow visited this week. Take a look:
A Northern Mockingbird is still visiting and gave me a quick shot while he stopped on top of a hanging water source near the deck.
This little American Goldfinch is all puffed out. Hope he is not sick and is just trying to stay warm.
I am seeing the Purple Finch and Cardinals at the feeders this week.
The red-bellied woodpecker is a regular visitor to the upside-down suet feeders or scavenging up and down the birch trees.
I'm thankful that the birds visit my feeders. It bring me such pleasure to watch them.
Our Mexican Sage and Elephant ears have put on a beautiful show this summer and early fall but tonight may be their last night of the season. Our temps our supposed to be in the lower 30's.
I will cut the elephant ears back and dig the bulbs to store in our shop for the winter. The sage isn't hardy for our zone but I'm going to try cutting it back and use a thick layer of mulch and hope to see sprouts in the spring. I'm also going to try to gather some seeds from the sage. The purple color of the sage was gorgeous.
Thanks for stopping by to see the birds at the feeders and in the trees - Judy.
