I’m having a hard time believing it’s October already.
But then I hear the White-throated Sparrows whistling as they hop through the grass and leaves looking for seeds. These adorable sparrows stop in for a few weeks every fall before departing south for the winter.
And American Robins don’t hang around my neighborhood much, but they do arrive in small flocks in October to hop around the yard while they wait for their turn at the birdbaths.
And in the mornings there are Sandhill Cranes trumpeting from high in the sky. They migrate to the warmth of Texas, Mexico and Florida for the winter.
