Another pretty easy week for blog sharing.
It has been such a busy time for many reasons. All of the leaves that you see in these images are now just about fully on the ground, and I am the chief yard keeper when it comes to the leaves, mulching, blowing, and mowing of the grass for all of the two 1/2 acres and all is done without the use of a riding machine.
I took time each day for about an hour to do my birding and got the Common Grackles shared this week on our land along with more Cedar Waxwings that I will share in next couple of weeks and I also got some little birds, that I will share and need some help with proper ID at that time, unless I become brave and try it on my own by that time.
Wishing you a marvelous week and I hope you have seen some of the kind of beauty that we have had with Autumnal colouration here. It would have been even better, but we did not have good rains leading into the season~

We have hundreds of trees on this land we call Tingsgrove and among them are Oaks as well as many other species, and below are the colours of the Fire Bushes~
Common Grackle, why do they say "common" for birds and butterflies in particular...they are so beautiful with that iridescent sheen...I love when they visit my land~
Dogwood and Osage Orange trees~
