While some of you enjoyed the thrill of an enormous red moon, the rest of us saw only clouds and rain. It has been raining on and off since Friday. More than six inches have fallen but the rain has been so steady and gentle there are no flash floods. Just a marvelous drink of water for our trees as they approach winter.
We missed the moon but it was worth it.
The birds don't seem to be bothered too much by the rain. We have domes atop all the bird feeders so the seeds stay dry. Many of the birds will shelter there even after they have eaten their fill.
The Tufted Titmouse is so wet his tuft is flat against its head.
A White-breasted Nuthatch rests near the tree trunk.
It is still raining this morning, but we are expected clear skies later in the week. For now, I enjoy sitting on the porch and watching the birds in the rain.
