Daily Pic | October Edition

Warning: This months post sponsored by, UBER-NERDOM. 

What this month lacked in good music it more than made up for with good birding.  Since joining I now easily track and record my findings after each outing.  This month’s Highlight Reel would include: A great Blue Heron, Sharp-skinned Hawk, Red-Bellied Woodpeckers & Downies, Titmice in droves, Dark Eyed Junco’s in droves, white-breasted nuthatches (love these guys), a blue-headed vireo(!), a Carolina Wren, Ruby-Crowned kinglets (a very challenging but very satisfying i.d.), …. cedar waxwings, and yellow-rumped warblers….. Sorry to all the lovelies that I consider common like, the cardinals, etc.  Seriously, migration is a very exciting time for bird-nerds like moi.

Believe it or not, I didn’t spend the whole month looking for flying friends.  We spent a lot of time at my sisters and the house is really getting there.  So impressed with all the work they’re doing.  It’s really showing. 

We celebrated a bunch of family birthdays, including my own, and had a fabulous time with each celebration.  I made an amazing sagria recipe perfect for the season, based on the glass I got at Buddakan last month
Combine: Chardonnay, apple cider, a little pineapple juice, vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla (or in my case Pinnacle Whipped) vodka.  YUM.

I really didn’t listen to anything of note.  I’m not really loving anything recently. Wah!

Uhmmm wuddelse… Well, I’m drawing a blank now! Here we go into the colder months… Eep.  Looking forward to hosting my 1st Thanksgiving this coming month ;)
