Let your heart's eye drift down.
Past the snow covered branch . . .
the clattering leaf.
Past the early sun at the horizon,
and follow the squirrel hopping to the ground.
Only the sun rises -
On a November morning.

November Birds

                   This morning, despite the frost, the pumpkin maintained a stiff upper lip.

              It was time to head out to the local metropark to drop in at the window on wildlife.

White-throated Sparrow

A closer look

There are 10 birds in this photo :)

So I'm posting a picture featuring SUNSHINE.

Ask anybody who knows me.  I'm a softie.   

Doggone it.

That red squirrel that I posted about.  Yes, the one eating the scarecrow.  

Doggone it.  

 Well, we've heard noise in our bedroom wall and scurrying in the upstairs ceiling.

Doggone it. 

 Found the hole he's chewed into the soffit beside the chimney.
Now I know where he put the scarecrow's clothes.

Poopie :(  The wildlife troubleshooter is coming in the morning.

Taken this morning as he basked in the fading November sun.

Doggone it.
