Near The Goldfinch Feeder

Yesterday we had much needed rain. We’ve been in a drought situation since June or so. Might have seen moisture in July once and again in September. Three or four days in October but that is about it. We have had what many would describe as an almost perfect fall weather wise. In the upper 60’s to low 70’s. You think you need the sweat shirt and you find yourself hot by noon. You put the mower away and have to get it out again.

Well, now that we are officially half way through November we are finally getting fall weather and I will assure you that there are those that are complaining as to how cold and dreary it is. Dreary, yesterday, maybe. Cold, no, just cooler than it was. Highs are in the upper 40’s to low 50’s. Yes winter is coming on but that is what it is suppose to do and we should hope that it does. That is how our planet is set up to function.

These Finch’s were eating heavily yesterday. They have to keep their body temperatures up and eating is one way they do it. At first I thought Batman had arrived but figured out it was my setup so I kept it.
