Nature Notes and Our World Tuesday: End of October and beginning of November


I had 13 mourning doves on my deck one afternoon but I didn't get them all into one shot.

A mockingbird joined them for a sip of water.

I spotted the Great Blue Heron at Lake Lynn which is a few miles from my house.

The next Great Blue Heron was also at Lake Lynn.

Below is an American Robin looking soft and beautiful.

I think robins look totally different when they face the camera like the one below with their beaks foreshortened.

More and more of the leaves in my neck of the woods (central NC) are changing colors.

My wooden deck furniture is playing host to lichen.

The next shot of bittersweet berries shows it holding onto the rain.

The last two shots were taken at Shelley Lake.

Shelley Lake is in my neighborhood and is the lake I walk at the most.

You really do live in an amazing place! Of course you have made your yard a bird haven, it wasn't just luck! And the birds are wonderful. I've noticed that about robins before, they look so different from the front.

Your lake and the fall colors are beautiful

The lichen looks like an artsy wall plaque and the red/white berries with the water droplets seem almost touchable and oh so Christmassy!

Welcome Carver!
I am delighted with photographs of birds and dark berries.
I have to look on the internet what the plant.
