It is only the third day of August, yet I saw a V of Canadian Geese going south yesterday. The Sandhill cranes are calling again, and getting ready for a southern migration. That is usually closer to the end of August. A large cow moose just walked through the yard and crossed the creek. They usually stay in the mountains until closer to the fall and come down when the snow is too deep during the winter. My Nuthatches came back to the feeders yesterday, and a Chickadee was singing to me from the willow this morning. All of the Grosbeaks except one have moved on. I think they may know something that I do not, but suspect Is anyone else seeing signs of early fall?
