Tufted Titmouse & Carolina Chickadee
Mr. Titmouse says to Mr. Chickadee, “Do you want to see me do a water trick?” Sure, says, Mr. Chickadee. Titmouse turns his back to Chickadee, and then he put his head down in the water and his tail high up. Titmouse said, “How did you like that trick?” Chickadee said, “Well, that is a good way to cool off.” as he laughs.
Some our of bird takes baths in cooler weather. The photos here were taken late in Oct.
The Whitetail deer now has their winter coats on. Their winter hair is thicker and longer, that helps them to stay warmer in the cold winter months. The top two photos are bucks and the bottom two photos are does.
The Monarchs are strong fliers, in the fall they start heading south. In some states they will start in October, as long as winter doesn’t start early there. They will either go to Mexico or Southern California; it depends which place is the closest for them to fly to.
