The mountain is filled with bird songs this morning. They must know that cold temperatures are on their way and winter is just a few days away. The birds are busy eating every last seed they can find. It is interesting to see the transition with the different species. The squirrels seem to move to lower elevation when the acorn crops become abundant. The bears disappear. The birds fatten up. It is nice to live at a slower pace where we notice the small changes.
