Great-tailed Grackle/Mexican Grackle (Quiscalus mexicanus)
Blessed 1st Advent!
November brings the nice, cooler weather into Texas. While it is still warmer in the afternoons, the honey bees try to get as much nectar as possible for the Winter season. The Texas Prairie, including our property, is covered with “Blue Sky” Asters at this time of the year. These plants provide food for all kinds of insects, birds and mammals. For us, it’s just beautiful to look at the light white/bluish dots in the grass.
Joshua prepares himself for the darker, cooler Winter days ahead. He senses the days become shorter, the nights longer; and the weather gets cooler. Now, he’s the oldest fur-baby. It’s time to man up and be a good leader of the pack/pride. So many things to “ponder on”.
