Picture Day

Fellow blogger Traci has left comments here. She has a nice blog (if you click on her name in the comments you can get to it) and she put up some lovely fall pictures. It reminded me that I had some pictures I hadn't edited yet, so here are a few good ones. (Thanks for motivating me, Traci!)

Sometimes in the summer, a flock of grackles will descend on our place. They'll be up in the trees, all over the yard, flying around, and creating a huge racket. It always reminds me of "The Birds."

I've mentioned our pair of Red-Breasted Nuthatches. It was hard to get a picture of these little guys, because they don't sit still for long.

Finally, we had a gorgeous sunset one evening, and I loved the way the trees looked against the sky.

I found your link at MagicSmoke... blogplugs... I loved the sunset photos! I would love to be able to capture such a photo from our home, but the trees are so near to the house, it pretty much blocks out any sunset or sunrise events. I've never seen so many grackles... I have seen a flock of canaries... hundreds of them come around in early spring... they're olive green in color. Nice to meet you. bea

Thanks for stopping by, Bea! The grackles in the picture were only a portion of the flock in the yard. I'd say there were at least 4 times as many! That's why it reminds me of the Hitchcock movie!
