The pine siskins are always the first to come back to the feeders after the first fright flight as I open the front door.

This little siskin wasn’t the least bit intimidated by my close presence, but the tilt of his (her?) head at each snap of the camera showed at least he was interested. He was also dropping feathers like crazy. Molt?

Not a good shot, admittedly, but it’s the only proof I have that I have at least one new Barn Owl. I have been listening to evening hissing for over two weeks now, it’s about time I finally get to spot my new tenant!

And finally, my bee. I’m glad that he admires my new Missouri Goldenrod plant, bought at the native species sale while I was out on assignment earlier this year.
