Thought I'd give a final update on my sunrise observations...
Taken September 1st at a little after 7am. Sun is behind the silos.
Taken October 1st at a little after 7:15am. The sun is quite a bit farther to the South and not nearly as high.
Taken November 1st at a little after 7am. Sun still hasn't risen.
And remember way back in the begining of September when I said that we would be expecting eggs by the end of that month? Well, as usual, it took quite a bit longer than I had anticipated. I don't know who comes up with the "start laying eggs at 21 weeks" rule!! It's never happened for us!! But finally, yesterday I found this little egg in their laying box!! Hooray!!
While walking down our driveway today I saw this cute little White Breasted Nuthatch on one of the Sycamore trees. He just hopped around on the tree when I came closer. Normally birds will fly away. Not this little guy though. I ran in and grabbed the camera and got a couple of shots before he decided to skedaddle. They are always one of my favorite birds around the winter birdfeeder. It's always funny to see them climbing around upside down.
