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 ebird.org 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 ;)
