Changing of the Seasons - 24 Oct 2015
Other sightings included a pair of Chipmunks, a Downy Woodpecker, numerous Blue Jays, the Northern Cardinal pair, a dozen American Goldfinches, and of course, the House Finches and House Sparrows.
With Hurricane Patricia pounding the Gulf we had strong southwest winds that pushed dark clouds past us all day. Though it was mid-afternoon the skies were twilight dark. While Asia ate grass in the yard I sat and enjoyed a stream of Turkey Vultures float lazily over the house, taking advantage of the strong winds to soar against the winds. They painted a lovely picture of black silhouettes against dark gray skies.
