I haven’t taken any bird pictures because the feeders are down. Not sure when they’ll go back up, but I’m thinking maybe the end of August or mid-September. I have a lot of seed and I have the feeders. I’m really waiting for the giant troupe of squirrels to learn to love the woods and acorns and not be wholly dependent on my seed. I’m also hoping that the number of flying squirrels stop emptying the feeders every night.
I went to take pictures of the garden — or whatever you want to call it — and there was a big gray bird. I’ve seen a lot of catbirds, but this one was bigger than usual. And fat. I guess the birds aren’t starving because I took down the feeders.
