Simple Entertainment

Sitting here at my breakfast table this morning, I've been entertained all morning by the birds and squirrels that frequent my backyard.

Squirrels have been chasing each other through the branches of my large crape myrtle, and scampering back and forth across the fence, carrying acorns and pecans to their secret hidey-holes for winter stash.

 A male Baltimore Oriole has been frequenting my hummingbird feeder for the last couple of weeks and now a female has joined him, returning often for some nectar.

Those feisty hummingbirds have been around since mid-August and I've made more nectar this year than ever before.
