Although the White Crowned Sparrows have long migrated south and the green grass has turned to gold it’s fun to look back at remember them singing away and look forward to their return next spring.
Hidden ever so slightly in a forest of green is a Mountain Chickadee. We can count on our small friends to keep us company year long and now that winter is on the way we do enjoy their company.
Happy Friday and enjoy the weekend.

On a recent hike we came across a small pond in an unexpected place which delivered another unexpected sight, a Sora, out and about foraging on a cloudy afternoon. Given the lack of sunlight and the distance to cover the photos were not the best but the memory of seeing this secretive little bird pecking away still burns bright.
It seems like we have always photographed Western Meadowlarks in spring and early summer but never in autumn so seeing a few hanging out on fence posts one afternoon singing away was a treat especially in their fall plumage.
