Progressive Patterns

September 2019

Sparrows and Finches

The birds are starting to come back! Really! Klamath Falls has been almost barren this summer. Now there are a few dozen sparrows and finches in a cluster of fruit trees next to the road where I walk. It is cheering to hear their constant patter!

Starling V's

So I always thought a Starling's spots were round. No! They are V's! Does any other bird have a pattern like this? I told you I am still fairly new to birding!

Golden Robin

I mentioned in an earlier post that most of the birds abandoned Klamath Falls this summer. That included the Robins and they have not returned yet. This youngster was one of the 5 of 100 that stayed. And he stayed still for a while during golden hour so I could not only take a photo but enjoy a happy calm little creature. Friendly moments are good moments.

Golden Horses

Walking down the road from the Robin I came upon mother and foal having a moment of their own in the setting sun. All of nature and humanity should be filled with such warmth! One day!

Pelicans are returning!

 

Sentinel between the seasons

O tell me now

you who see.

Declare to me

what you know.

I see that summer

long is past.

The greens are fading.

Brown seeks its time.

But what is that

upon your shoulders?

White it shines

though the sun be set.

More than frost

it looks like snow.

Sentinel signals

that winter is near.
