Black Crows and Dark-eyed Juncos

I enjoy exploring the urban woods and surrounding areas near home.

Colorful flowers, especially wildflowers, butterflies and songbirds are especially welcome to be seen.

In the latter part of summer though, there is much less to see.

But, there’s always something that catches my eye. Sometimes it’s just an old and scruffy crow.
