September has been fun.
The smell of October is in the air.
I am ready to dance with the leaves.
Farewell, so long!
Thanks so much for a fine time.
See you next year.
Lisa from Greenbow was kind to identified my new arrival as a
Thank you, Lisa.
My bird book says the male and the female look the same.
They are named after their lower bill (mandible).
I am so pleased Yellow-billed Cuckoo has stayed for a few days.
They are summer residents in our forests and winter in Argentina.
Perhaps now that this one has found my backyard habitat he will return next summer.
Maybe he will bring his mate.
My book says they are in decline.
I will learn about these remarkable birds so I can provide food and shelter.
I am so pleased he stopped for fueling and resting during his migration.
The morning dew is heavy.
I have set aside the week to get ready.
October is almost here.
It might take me a few months to learn the new lens.
I am looking forward to the learning!
I have seen them all day long,
flying high over the highways.
I am following their migration this year,
on Journey North's web site.
Monarch Watch is also a fun site.
