Through the September fog the Mouring Doves almost out number the leaves.



September also brings the gathering of Canada Geese. The staging area, a pond just north

of our farm, produces the formation of frequent large "V's" that lumber just over head, their sounds

echoes off the distant red rock across the valley.

 

The pond is a welcome stop to even the most humble. This lone Rock Dove cones rarely for a drink and bath.

 

This American Robin watches closely as we till the land. Any turned soil is quickly examined for earthworms 
and with a turned ear quickly satisfies their hunger.

      

 

 

Sunflowers prepared by the sun and fall provide a natural bird feeder for this pair of House Finches.

 

Even with the very wet snow the Flicker stops by for a drink.

Western Kingbird finds a shocking place for its nest.

The American Kestrel's diligence helps with the farms mouse population.

The Western Meadowlark's song is a delight to hear.

The Ringedneck Pheasant adds color to the feeder visitations.

 

 

 

Some "birds" seen above the farm are more rare.

 

 


 	        This Weekend and other times. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society invite you to
             participate in the tenth annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC). It's fun, it's free, and it helps the birds.
             Just count birds at any location for at least 15 minutes on one or more of the count days, February 16-19, 2007.
             Record the highest number of each species you see at any one time and send your tallies to the GBBC web site at
             http://birdsource.org/gbbc. 
            You'll be able to see results in real-time as bird watchers report what they're seeing from across the 
             United States and Canada.
