Seems like we just arrived at Sickstas and Craigys and now we are gone..and in West Virginia..
When we arrived five weeks ago..there were no leaves on the trees…
When we left they were all leafed out..
Unless they came out in the open like this Summer Tanager..
Before we left…Craigy and I peeked in the box and saw three eggs..
When we arrived the Chickadees were in and out of the moon…building their nest..
Ten minutes before we left, I saw the Chickies fledge…What a treat! I didn’t have my camera, nor did I want to take the time to grab it…I savored every moment…as the awkward little fledglings left the Moon for their first flight.
I saw ferns unfolding..
I will see more here up north…seems like it’s a few weeks behind here…
When we are at New River he will be lucky if he gets a walk all week, we will be gone all day birding.
Craigy likes to sit by his pond watch the fish…six Goldfish..Sicksta put some flowers in the pond.
And Craigy plays in his pool too…
Jeff is always busy killing Vampires…don’t even ask.
anyone know what it is? > I bet Sicksta Lori does.
lots of bugs in Sickstas yard.
When we arrived the Iris were just budding~
Before we left we were able to see many different Iris blooming..
We saw what devastating damage a Tornado can cause..
We did all that, yet it seems like it was no time at all…
Where did the time go?
The Warblers have just started to arrive in numbers…and we will miss that..
We will miss Craigy yelling at the Kitchen as he puts it together..
We will miss the Bluebirds fledge…
We will miss the flowers that were just about to show off…
We will miss Sicksta, Craigy and the pups..
Such is the life of wanderers….
Goodbye Sicksta and Craigy and pups…
See you in November..
I hope the time goes by slower then…
