The colors on the trees are starting to fall to the ground….Autumn_036I love autumn…yesterday we had a leaf catching contest.

I caught 16 leaves..I won. Jeff caught two one handed…I use two hands..

Muther caught one. I don’t think dad tried but he enjoyed watching us twirl around and run after the spinning leaves.Autumn_033Autumn_030

We enjoy our walks….Autumn_028The birds are still migrating thru the area..Autumn_029We saw flocks of White-throated sparrows and Juncos.At the pond, Upland sandpipers, Green winged teal and Mallards…flocks of Brown headed cowbirds along the edges.Autumn_018Autumn_011Yeah, its that time of year again…moving time..Autumn_004We will start our journey south for the winter in a few weeks..Autumn_007To warmer climes. Autumn_040I look forward to the next phase in our journey.Autumn_039In the meantime, I am loving it here…I am soaking up the color..Autumn_038I am walking on crunchy leaves…and breathing the crisp, cold air.Autumn_037

It just makes you want to get out and kick through a pile of leaves! In fact, that is exactly what I did during my lunch break, just to releave the tension of the day.

Ah, the mobile life of changes. Much like the gorgeous colors of leaves that eventually fall softly to wherever the wind blows.

...wow! Your colors are incredible. With the drought, things are a bit faded around here. Bittersweet is always the feeling I have when autumn comes around...

Hilke Breder said...

Fall is one of my favorite seasons. You captured it well, the colors of the leaves, the plump ripe berries, the sky...

I want you to know that I enjoy each and every one of your blogs.
In the near future on the Birdingblogs.com site I will start to feature different birding blogs and posts on birds on fridays.

I will ask permission before I feature a blog.
