A beautiful, warm, protracted fall this year and the Beaver super moon was spectacular, as promised. Some firsts seen in our wildlife-friendly yard this fall included a sharp-shinned hawk and a bald eagle (poor photo due to its height in the sky, but it was distinguishable enough for a positive ID). We appreciated our last warm sunny days listening to bird song, and were pleasantly surprised to see a green frog in the pond right up until November. Finding the hidden nests in the fall is always something we look forward to. The basketball-sized paper wasps’ nest was a discovery to behold! See photo gallery below.
