Came out the front door and startled a small horde of english sparrows munching on the Callicarpa berries near my front door. Usually the berries last well into winter but don't think that is going to happen this year. Mountain ash in the back has been stripped as well, fun bird watching for Romy. I could still seem quite a few berries on the Viburnum trilobum in the far back yard however. I planted them all as bird food, of course. Just wondering what factors have caused them to be gone earlier this year. Inquiring minds want to know.
Hawk was circling overhead as I left the neighborhood.
Today is my fracking, mumble, @%$#^@ birthday. UPS delivered presents which I will open when I get home.
