Haunting, Enthralling, Enchanting —Thursday, October 29, 2020

Before Autumn abruptly shifted into winter

I walked the farm marveling

At the dance the flocks of birds make, swirling and dipping in the sky.

Look who is back!Β  The day before the big wind, I saw a Sandhill Crane in the yard!

And a Crow on the road!

Not to mention

Our amazing hawk—I call him Harry. It might be a she, so Harriett would then be her name.


Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. Those swirling clouds of (usually) starlings – called a β€œmurmuration β€œ. There are fabulous videos of them on YouTube from various parts of the world. In some videos they are close enough to hear the sound. Just enthralling!


  2. Ah…the sandhills have arrived. Wonderful! I miss wishing them safe journey every year. You capture natures beauty so well. How are you doing?


  3. Amazing shots! As usual… That crane is stunning. What a visit. Your place is so full of activity.

    Did it warm up for ya’? I threw some heat your way. Then, we got blasted with wind gusts from the Zeta. We had a huge murder of crows in an enormous Pecan across the street. BOY they were chattering.

    I was walking my yard, picking up limbs strewn all over the place. We got some steady rain, too.
