@Epster   Oh my goodness. I sure hope you manage to harvest your birds before the bear gets to them.  Do you have a good bear repellant spray to keep yourselves safe?  If not, try wasp and hornet spray. Those can shoot a stream 20 to 30 feet, and so you don't need to be up close and personal like with mace.  They used to come around at my place too.  window bear.jpg;-)

Hello, Everyone!

@doglover52, Sue, I'm hoping the same thing happens here. We have severe storms predicted for later today and tonight with high winds, hail, and all that yucky stuff. So...if the storms take away the humidity that will be one good thing they do.

Right now it is cloudy with bursts of sun, and 82 feeling like 87. You can go outside and just stand there and your skin steams up. Yesterday I got out of the car at the grocery store and my glasses steamed up and I couldn't see a thing. Cat LOL N.

Lots of blue in the sky this morning here and a forecast high of 70. 

The weather report shows a lot more rain for today.

We had a nice storm overnight, a quiet female.

The little Indigo Bunting has already been at the feeder.

When he leaves here, he heads over to the big spruce at the end of the drive-way.

I wonder what his mate looks like.

Fingernail moon rise:

All this beauty to
exit, leaving stage open
to another gorgeous day.

@Epster @catwoman500  I agree with the consensus of Indigo Bunting. I went to the website that you supplied, and with the map on the page it makes sense also.  He's been in and out of the feeder again all day. I poured a good bit of the fruit and nut trail mix into the feeder and I think that's what keeps him coming back.  So thank you both.  My rabbit won't miss it that bag, he gets so many goodies, and after clearing out the old seed, that is now out on the drive-way, and attracting squirrels, chipmunks, and a very large crow, and the Cardinal....in all his red finery. I wanted something a bit more attractive than just plain old seed mix.  I took more photo's that I have yet to download from my camera, and I'm hoping I have better light on some of them.

Check forecast; find trail
high 70s - high 80s
locale depending.

 

Rivers running high,
wildflowers reaching higher.
Sun dances with clouds.

 

Respite ride today,
stretch yesterday’s hardworked parts,

let spirit soar with wind.

@JoyaDe I say bunting, because I see no evidence of the rusty wing tips, but do see dark around the eyes, wing tips and tail. (Awesome visitor! Lucky you!)

@JoyaDe, Maybe this link will help. Buntings are about the size of a sparrow, grosbeaks are larger... Hope it works! Cat Happy
