The bulk of the leaves left the trees over the weekend with a few exceptions.
The first few shots were take early last week and these same trees are mostly bare now.
I usually cover about 7 days in my nature notes.
This time of the year there is a big difference from the way my world is looking over the span of a week.
The American Robins above look like they are having a party.
In the shot above the female cardinal is on top and the male cardinal is way down on the bottom.
The male cardinal above is eating something tasty on the crepe myrtle tree and the female cardinal is taking a break below.
I've been seeing bluebirds, doves, chickadees, towhees, nuthatches and many other birds but most of my shots seem to be of cardinals.
The sparrow and cardinal below are having a drink together.
I like the way a few leaves clinging to a tree look.
I don't particularly like the fact that trees are growing in my gutters.
The bluejay has a wind blown look.
I think the bird below is a starling.
The past couple of days I had to remove ice from the bird baths once in the morning and once again in the early afternoon.
The female cardinal hopped in as soon as I gave her some warm water.
Another cardinal was debating whether to drink or bathe.
