This is the twentieth posting made this month. What could possibly be left over for the end-of-the-month goulash? Many things, it turns out, but I will show only a few of them.
The Chipping Sparrow is a common and widespread bird during our warmer months.
When I see a killdeer eating, it usually consumes insects, but here one is about to down a worm.
This is a profile view of the same chipmunk shown earlier. (I just liked it.)
We get two kingbirds: Western and Eastern. This is the Western.
A Northern Shoveler couple swims by (different shovelers than shown earlier).
There is still time to consider goslings as being cute, rather than as poop generators.
Fallstreaks graced our sky just before a storm.
A muskrat swims by at just below its hull speed.
We see the Horned Grebe in its non-breeding plumage throughout the winter, but it is rarely seen locally in its breeding plumage because it promptly leaves to breed farther north.
A black bear (not the same one as shown earlier) has collected seeds on it nose and ears.
