Every year in November, I’ve noticed that a couple of Turkey Vultures and one or two Red-tailed Hawks team up to soar the sky above our neighborhood. Sometimes, they stick around above our house to see, if there is a mouse, a small bunny or a song bird, they can swoop and have it for dinner. At this time of the year, I feed the smaller birds and the Eastern Cottontails more frequently. It also attracts the Birds of Prey. Not seldom, I have a Cooper’s Hawk or a Swainson’s Hawk sitting in my trees or on my fence. Since the community got bigger, due to more houses built in the surrounding neighborhood, wildlife finds its home in our backyard.
Well, original I wanted to blog about my Autumn Squirrel photo. But now, I’m working on trying to figure out the new layout, while writing and adding the photo on WordPress. I guess, it will take a couple of days, until I’m fluent with the new settings. In the meantime, here is a photo of the cute critter I’ve captured at the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano, Texas.
It suppose to become wet and much cooler the next few nights. A warm fire helps to stay cozy in this late Autumn weather. Once the front passes, it will be a bit warmer again.
Kevin, the girls and I went to the American Heroes Festival, this evening. But we didn’t stay until the fireworks. The girls were bored and hungry already, before Sawyer Brown came on stage. And it was cold anyway. So we left early to have dinner at a local restaurant. It was nice to see Restless Hearts live, let the kids go on some rides and hang out with their friends. When the sun set, I captured some long exposures of the fair rides.
Today, Germany celebrates its 29th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. East and West Germany became officially “one” country and therefore many people became reunited with their families, again. Since 1990, we celebrate Day of German Unity (Tag der Deutschen Einheit) annually on October 3rd.
