Forward - From the Heartland of Carolina

This is a continuing story of the journey Forward shared by 2 people, Lynne and Tom. Both love to LIVE life to it's fullest, which currently means spending lots of time outdoors, working on various projects from gardens to patios, flowers to vegetables, sunrises and sunsets, birds and woodland critters, and spending time with family. Don't forget to check the monthly archives, and please feel free to leave us a comment so we know you stopped by.

Morning scenes

Now that the growing season is over for the farmers, the blackbirds take to the sky shortly after sunrise to feed on the recently harvested cornfields; shortly after, one of the resident red-tailed hawks follows, probably looking for an errant field mouse or other unfortunate animal for a meal. The blackbirds, well you can almost set your watch by them. out to feed at 6:45, back to roost at 4:45. Apparently they do better with the time change than most of us do ;)

Back at the feeder, the small downy woodpecker is usually one of the first visitors of the morning, once the cardinals and chickadees have settled down.
