What a difference between yesterday and today. Hot and humid yesterday to the point where I did not even want to go outside, while today the humidity has disappeared and the temperature has dropped to the point where it is almost (not quite) cool. There is a breeze and it feels good.
I have been sitting out on the deck since getting up, Coffee, toast, yogurt (wish it was coffee yogurt).
A Gray Catbird was hopping along the top of the fence, “meowing”. A Black-capped Chickadee flew into in the honeysuckle busy and then promptly dropped out of sight. A Painted Lady butterfly landed on the fence and spread its wings to soak up some of the sun’s rays. Two young robins flew and landed on the fence. Once I moved, they took and flew to who knows where. A Brown Thrasher flew out across the marsh. American Goldfinches keep circling around overhead. A hummingbird zoomed in out of nowhere and checked out my feeders. This made me get up and clean the feeders (has not been done in a while), refill with fresh nectar and hang them back up for the hummers.
