I know it’s early October since I’m already behind on all my fall tv shows, my favorite baseball teams are all out of the playoffs and I awake each morning to a blanket of leaves covering the lawn, but the weather is telling a different story.  After a few days in the 80s and our 97th time this year that we hit 80 degrees (our fourth most on record) and, of course, the accompanying muggy mess, it definitely did not feel like October.  Instead of complaining (ok, maybe there was one or two comments) we went to the park where the fall colors let us know we were actually in October, even if the park had a summer vibe.

Walking around every colorful bend, we were greeted by walkers and bicyclists

and the occasional jogger.

The big birds were everywhere and willing to pose (also hiss at me when we were both surprised to see one another)

and some were just posers.

It felt like every time I turned around there was another wonderful opportunity to capture a beautiful bird surrounded by nature’s autumn transformation

and sometimes if I failed to see a bird, Gabby was more than happy to point them out.

    1. There is a Sandhill Crane and Art Festival this weekend in our state and we have a few parks that are always a stop for a very large gathering of cranes during their migration. With Gabby’s health we have not been able to travel that far lately and it was wonderful to see a few that spend the summer and fall so close to home.🙂

    1. Thank you!🙂 It was a beautiful summer/fall day at the park and I’m thrilled it actually feels like fall today. There were reports of snow Up North today, where the fat tire bikes are very popular. I’m going to need my boots and hat for kayaking tomorrow morning. Enjoy your weekend!🙂
