This past Saturday seemed to be a mirror image of Saturday a week ago because of the few and in between bird sightings. It would have probably been more productive, if we had just watched out my kitchen window.
I guess you might say that we were back to business as usual this past Saturday afternoon when Anthony Gray and myself left Peking to head south in the hopes of seeing some of our feathered friends.
Wow! This week, I don't have any special stories to tell you about going birding with Anthony Gray. He had to attend a birthday party in Shelbyville, Tennessee this past Saturday.
It was another great looking Saturday morning with several birds at my feeders having a go at lunch, or it could be breakfast. Plans had already been made for a mid day safari, but wasn't sure where we would go to.
I am hoping that each of you had a nice Halloween, with plenty of spooks to brighten your evening. After being on my feet all day at the Senior Center, I was ready to kick back and raise my legs a tad to alleviate the swelling.
Last Friday as Anthony Gray and myself sat outback next to the trees, we were watching the Eurasian Collared Doves feeding up under the feeders close to the house when all of a sudden, they scattered like they were shot out of a cannon.
I got up pretty early Friday morning to do a little birding with two of my favorite friends. Karen Franklin along with her daughter Anna, picked me up just after seven in the morning where we headed out to the Cedars of Lebanon State Park.
Believe it or not, my last Hummingbird left town sometime on Oct. 9. I will bid them a final farewell but will still leave a couple of feeders out just to be on the safe side. There is always next year to enjoy them once again.
Sitting outside this past Wednesday, Anthony Gray and I were enjoying the continuing antics of several of my Hummers. Even though I still have my Hummer feeders out, it doesn't keep the small bird here because of the availability of food. There are still plenty of flowers that are in full bloom all over Tennessee.
Even though they are still present and feeding all over my yard, I will try not to mention the "H" word. This time of the year, when cold snaps happen to our northern states, it's time to be preparing for an influx of those feathered friends that call Tennessee home for the winter months.
