Ah the ONTH of October

Soon to be Turkey dessert?
A piece of bark draped over a tree limb looking like a deer face.
Late yesterday afternoon, after I had toiled in the garden on and off most of the day, I took a slow and leisurely walk about. Later I sat; totally content listening to the turkeys calling, the deer scampering across the creek, the walnuts hitting the roof of the garage and listening to the birds.


Sometime in the middle of the night the Moon awoke me as it shone down through the skylight…
‘Tis moonlight, summer moonlight, All soft and still and fair; The solemn hour of midnight Breathes sweet thoughts everywhere … Extract from ‘Tis moonlight, summer moonlight By Emily Jane Brontë [1818-48]

You have some very nice pictures of birds on your blog. The geese are nice.

I have a bird blog which some people don't know about. It is in the list when you click on my name.

Thanks for your visit to my blog.

I must say thank you for visiting. Also I would like to admit that I am jealous of your Pileated Woodpecker. I have only seen this one and then only twice and I took as many photos as I could but I am still waiting for one to land here in my backyard.

I agree with Abraham about the geese, I have not seen any as pretty to at as these. Have you any idea what they are called?

Loverly pictures today as usual, and thank you for your visits and the time taken to comment.

We have raised Geese here for almost 25 years; the first ones purchased were called Embden Geese. Over the years shades of Grey began to predominate. Most domestic geese are descended from the wild Greylag Goose, but the Chinese and African probably have Swan Goose ancestry.
