Here Comes Fall!!!

The air is different. The tomato plants are changing to a different production mode. School has started. Shore birds are migrating with more urgency through our marsh. I can hear thumps and grunts coming from the football field 2 blocks away. It is cool in the mornings. Doves are starting to gather for their annual exodus with the first cold snap. White-tailed fawns are starting to lose their spots. Change is here.

Undoubtedly, many birds are feeling zugunruhe right now as we have begun to see some of the early migrants stop through Cheyenne Bottoms in the last couple weeks.
