Common Nighthawk

Things happening now. Nighthawks are still migrating, we saw 24 last night. Keep looking. Best times are between 4 to 7:30 pm.

Some early fall migrants are beginning to come through. We have seen Common Yellowthroats, a Brown Thrasher, a few Pine Warblers, some young Cooper's Hawks, and more. Keep feeders full and bird baths available, migrants like a drink.

Yesterday was our Corgi Abby's birthday, one year old. Happy Birthday Abby. She got to go out for doggy ice cream, joined by her sisters Bubbles and Pearl and, of course, our other Corgi Phoebe who finished her ice cream waaay before the others.

Just gotta ask....what is Doggie Icecream? My dog gets stuck with people icecream.

Doggie ice cream is really soft serve vanilla with lots of dog biscuits in it. Our local ice cream stand serves it. There's something called "frosty paws" which is a frozen treat just for dogs, but we have a hard time locating a source.
