My property has been loaded with yellow rumps the last few days. Also had a couple robins and an unidentified bird that looked like a juvenile cedar waxwing.

I'm thinking it's gonna be an unseasonably cold winer. All of my chicken waterers were iced over this morning and I saw snow flurries too and it's only Oct 22nd!!!

The farmers almanac is predicting a cold winter. I forget where the super bowl is to be held but a big storm is predicted for when the game is to be played. I'm ready! No driving to work in the snow anymore since I retired from my full time job. Right now my dog walking job is for a school teacher so she will be home to take care of the dogs when the weather is bad...uh and its 5 minutes from where I live. Just to really rub it in I have a new picture window in my living room and I look forward to seeing how pretty the snow looks.

I have seen four ground hogs hanging out by the sides of our country roads in the past few days. Does anyone know why groundhogs do this in the fall? Not a bird, but falls under the "today I saw..." Rubric! No fall migrants who winter here here yet, but if they are in Ohio already they must be coming. I am still seeing hummers coming through, but not as frequent.

I think it is going to be a cold winter, too. The weather has been all screwed up this year, and we are,already having our first hard freeze. My daughter needs to visit Cornell in January to see what winter is really like and decide if she really wants to go there. She puts on a sweatshirt when it gets down to 68. I think she will freeze.

Awe turttle, she'll get used to it! Up here natives wear shorts and open jackets in the winter. We're on the very edge of the university and the complex next to us houses mostly Asian grad students and those young girls wear the shortest skirts and their little pencil legs must be freezing!

I felt bad for a patient in the Ortho center's parking lot who had a leg cast and was using one of those scooters while wearing a flimsy skirt and light sweater today with temps in the 30s! Probably dressed for the scooter.

I love that area around Cornell. You'll enjoy visiting!

Oh, and today we saw a lot of American Coots, some Hooded Mergansers and Pied-billed Grebes, plus Canada Geese and Sandhill Cranes.
