From green to red, hot to cold, sun to snow, October has shown the breadth of what one transitional month is capable of. This October I didn't make it out nearly as much as I would have liked, but every time I was able to, I was not disappointed.
As we sit here on this cold, dark, last day in October, it's hard to think back to the 80 degree days we had just a few weeks ago.
Yesterday I was out walking at the Bog when all of a sudden I had the impression of springtime, the crisp air, the occasional sun, but what sold it for me was the spring birds singing in the trees! Fall migration sends our feathered friends back to their winter homes, not usually in as dense of groups as the spring travel, but on this occasion the trees and shrubs were full of song. Don't forget to put your feeders out to help these birds on their journey!
