Life goes on in Northwest Georgia… It is Summer and we get high temperatures daily, the humidity of this season is a classic of Georgia. We just have to pretend that it’s just “peachy”. Got my electric bill with a 100% increase charges for usage!
Changing subject, the Eastern Bluebirds that nested and roosted in my backyard have been gone for a couple of weeks already. There are still a bunch of juveniles going around from the following species:
- Northern Cardinal
- Mourning Dove
- European Starling
- Common Grackle
- House Finch
Last week I saw a Hummingbird getting nectar from my dwarf Crape Myrtle that is actually in full bloom! I couldn’t ID the hummer because it left very quickly, I think it’s not a Ruby-throated. I have my special feeder with fresh nectar waiting for them!
