Something unusual happened today. On the first day of fall, it actually looked and felt like it. What a treat! The air was dry, the temperature, though not cool, was mild, and the sky was gray and overcast (right) which made it seem cooler than it was. It was a great way to start the season.
The falcon was back. I have not seen it the last few times I visited, and thought perhaps it had moved on traveling farther south for the winter. It appears to be a small, compact bird, so I was shocked when it took off to see how long its wings are.
Green Thought:“In the midst of the complexities of modern life, with all its pressures, the spirit of man needs to refresh itself by communion with unspoiled nature. In such surroundings- occasional as our visits may be- we can achieve that kind of physical and spiritual renewal that comes alone from the wonder of the natural world.” ― Laurance S. Rockefeller
