The birds seem to be wild about this cooler weather. Every day I have a gorgeous Varied Thrush visit, and the usual carnival of Dar-eyed Juncos, Flickers, and illustrious Stellar's jays.
Raccoon got into the garbage; only a little mess.
Here is one of local bald eagles ... (I asked him to turn around, but he said he no dice).
Common Mergansers with their blown-back 'dos'.
