It's hard to believe we left Texas almost 5 months ago!
We're leaving Aroostook State Park today and plan on taking a week or so to get home.
We've had some beautiful, sunny days this last week and I've been spending more time outside and less time in front of the computer. I might write up a few more blog entries for this area so, stay tuned.
In the meantime, here are a few more 'out my window' pictures. Enjoy!
We had several bird species that used our feeders all summer long, but we picked up a couple of unusual visitors in August. First was a pair of Ovenbirds that started visiting the area where seed had fallen under the feeders. They may have been finding insects there, as Ovenbirds are not generally thought to be seed eaters.
The other unusual visitor was this beautiful male Black-throated Blue Warbler. He became a regular on our peanut butter log. This log holds a mixture of peanut butter, lard, and cornmeal which is high in fat and protein. It attracts a variety of birds.
