We are supposed to hit 100 F here today which will be a record for this date.

I've been keeping the birdbath filled with fresh water and am getting birds not usually found in my backyard - chickadees ans Red-winged Blackbird adults are bringing their fledglings to the water. I know they are both extremely common birds but I very rarely get either of these in my yard.

Supposed to be near 100 in Kansas today. This is just WRONG for October 2.

Not much activity here...mostly grackles and sparrows. Well, the blue jays come in to raid the peanut feeder daily of course!

Not too windy today, but yesterday was pretty bad. When they say "breezy" in the forecast here you can count on 10-20 mph winds. We have 365 bad hair days a year!

They are predicting our first snow of the year for Sunday night. It should be just a dusting.

The weather man just said....."first frost on Sat. morning" Upper 40's over night tonight. LOL it was near 90 yesterday, or just over.

That will make the Hummingbirds hungry!
