Blowin' In the Wind

My yard erupted in orange a while back.  Isaac blew in some migrants, birds I haven’t seen for a while.  Wind blowing, excitement, and birds hopping all over in search of food—no way was I going to get a great picture.   I did try.  I watched with camera and binoculars for several hours that day.  Work took a back seat.

It is evident that fall is around the corner.  Cool mornings followed by still hot afternoons foretell of a change of season in my neck of the world.  Also, migrants coming into the area distract from the routine in a much welcomed way.  This species also brings fond memories of my childhood and is one of the first species with which I became familiar.
