Thread: Well they are on their way

    Well they are on their way

    The birds that is. Yep being seeing them flying south all day. Flock after flock of them, some in the perfect vee formation, and some that weren't. Still they are on their way south.

    As a side note, the hills here in Thorndike are starting to turn color. Nothing heavy yet, but there is color on them there hills I tell ya. Here is a picture to prove it.

    If Alyson was not sick and home with me, I would run down to the swamp and take some pictures of the Red Maples. (They like swampy places to grow). Right now you can catch them at the right time. They are bright red while everything else is still pretty much green. Makes for nice contrast.

    Anyway here is what I am looking at right now. And yes I do need a windmill!!

    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    Well I did not get any replies on this, but I am sure there are others out there that enjoy fall foliage pictures. I found this website via the Maine Forest Service and they take pictures from all over the state. Thanks to modern technology you can all see the foliage and not have to leave home and brave our cold temps to see it.

    As I type this, its down to 30 with a heavy frost. Here is the link to the Maine Forest Service Fall Foliage Report and Photogallery.

    Meant to tell you I have seen a couple of you V's flying in. Lots of Canadian Geese winter here on the Tennessee River.


    No colors here yet except brown leaves. :-) But heck I am still mowing grass.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    We should start seeing birds fly over here soon on their way to Mexico.

    And thanks for the foliage pics, Travis.

    the last few years central ny has gathered a growing population of 'welfare geese', who dont' migrate at all, they live on local ponds and streams and such.
