Nature Notes: First Hint of Autumn

The dogwood trees are always the first to change colors in the autumn. I was pleased to see a hint of that change in my Dogwood Tree.
My wild backyard hides a multitude of animals. I pointed my camera at an area where I heard and saw glimpses of many birds but didn't catch any as they were hidden too deeply in the growth.
I love the shade from trees in the summer and have many in my yard.
I like the little white flowers in the volunteer ground cover in my yard but can't think of its name.

I keep seeing leaves falling, maybe before their time. But, I am not ready to let summer go yet. It is great to have places for the birds to hide, it gives them protection from their predators. Thanks for sharing, have a good night.

Now there's a fun idea - look for signs of changing leaves. I like how you hear the birds but you don't see them.

I wish that I had all those trees!

Already? Awwww -- summer just got here..... I love your yard/wildlife habitat. .... I keep pointing my camera into our wetlands and the sounds of grebes -- but all I ever get is water -- your hidden bird picture is much more interesting.

Yes! I love the coming of autumn. I detect it first in the long shadows of late summer. Your photos are wonderful.
