Perhaps the weather isn't yet "fall like" here in Miami, but the birds are back in town! Our backyard is definitely busy. When my husband refilled the bird feeder this morning and refilled the other one with peanuts, there was so much activity, that I just had to grab my camera and take a few shots. The Northern Mockingbird was actually inside our patio (easy to do, as most of our screens are missing). Got a couple of shots of a male Cardinal and of course, Bluejays and squirrels. The Dove up on the wire was just waiting for its next move. My husband saw a hawk swoop in and it was after one of the Doves, but he believes it got away. The Mockingbird actually flew in and chased after the hawk. Unfortunately, that all happened while I was out grocery shopping.
Tonight I'm heading to the Everglades to attempt the night sky for the first time. Hopefully I'll come away with something to share. Stay tuned!
