Happy November

Hello,

Happy Thursday and Happy November everyone!

The days and months are flying by, or is it just me.  I am sharing a few favorite  October images in a mosaic. 

"Wake up each day and be thankful for life." 



It has been a few years since I have seen the Red-breasted Nuthatch in my yard. My mosaic below shows both the Red-breasted on the left and the White-breasted Nuthatch on the left seen on 10/17/18.



Having the Screech Owl visit my yard in October made my month.  :) 




Always thankful for the blue sky.  




" Let the beauty we love, be what we do." Rumi

I am thankful for the right to vote, get out there peeps!  I am thankful for today and every day!
I am thankful to see the Red-breasted Nuthatch in my yard, YAY!
A thankful heart is a happy heart. 
am thankful for all your visits and comments. 


Thank you Michelle for hosting Thankful Thursday

Can you believe we are already at November????

I thought of you today as so many Canada geese flew over. I know YOU would have had your camera ready. Sadly, I did not. LOL

Nice to see the nuthatches. I have both Red-breasted and White-breasted coming to my feeders. White-breasted is to be expected, but I haven’t seen Red-breasted for a couple of years - on my feeder that is.

I needed some of your quotes for my post today! A thankful heart is a happy heart is perfect! Enjoy your day!

Thanks for more beauty of nature shared with me. Gratitude is here...and I hope whoever might still be skeptical that their vote matters, will go ahead and vote, because elections are our best promise for the future from today! Barb at Alchemy of Clay

Marie Smith said...

I’ve never seen a white breasted nuthatch. Thank you.

Sami said...

Beautiful collage, It's wonderful to get birds visiting our gardens :)
Enjoy the rest of the week Eileen.

A beautiful collage to display your lovely photos. Your bird and owl photos are nice to see. Have a wonderful start to a new month. It sure does feel like the days are sprinting by. Enjoy!

Red said...

Here the red breasted nuthatch is much more common than the white breasted nuthatch. The red breasted stays all winter.

Jeevan said...

Lovely walk back into the month of October and well-made collage and recollection of moments!

Happy November

Lea said...

Beautiful photos of the two Nuthatches!
Happy Thursday!
Hope November is a wonderful month for you!

Can't believe it is November already! Lovely shots.

William Kendall said...

The owl is my favourite.

Out on the prairie said...

Nice to have both Nuthatches, I have only seen a few reds. I caught the same white breasted 3 years in a row banding birds at the same location. They remind me of little clowns and always catch my eye.

Bob Bushell said...

Beautiful collage, well done Eileen. And I, agree with you, get him out.....

Debbie said...

beautiful eileen, what a month!! i see both of the nuthatches here and i have been seeing them more lately. the owl i'm sure was a big treat, unexpected as well!! you have gotten some great pictures of it!!!

Sandra said...

love the tiny yellow bird in the center of the collage and also the way the light hits the bird on the feeder.

Linda W. said...

I like your mosaic. Happy November to you!

Lois said...

Love the collage! Happy November to you too.

Carol @Comfort Spring Station said...

I'm so impressed with the birds you see in your yeard. Wonderful!

RedPat said...

Both the Red-breasted and White-breasted Nuthatches are regular visitors at the feeders I view. Neither of them stays still for long though! I'm still thrilled for you to have that owl in the yard, Eileen!

Beautiful sky, so cool that you were visited (and able to photograph) the screech owl, and I can't believe it's November already!!!

Mia said...

Wow! I love this owl, Eileen. Happy November, my friend.

Michelle said...

I love your first quote about waking up and being thankful. That's the best way to think. Thank you for linking up today!

Linda G. said...

You always do such a nice job with your mosaics. Yes, the days and months seem like they are flying by.

Joyful said...

I love all the photos. That beautiful sky shot is particularly nice. I agree that the time just flies by rather far too quickly. I want time to slow down a bit so I can do all I want to do :-) Have an awesome weekend Eileen.

Hi Eileen, What a neat post! “Wake up each day and be thankful for life.” That has been my motto ever since triple bypass heart surgery 8 years ago. And yes, the older I get, the faster the days fly by. I love your October mosaic. You inspire me to see if I can do something like that on John’s Island. :-) And wow … what a great visit by the Screech Owl! Sky pic is great too! Lastly … I mailed in my ballot yesterday. It feels better than ever to say, “I voted!” Thanks, as always, for sharing and for your kind comments on John’s Island. Have a happy weekend!

Jenn Jilks said...

There is much to be thankful for here.
It's lovely seeing your critters.

Jeanie said...

I've missed your beautiful birds and creatures. So glad to be back -- this is a nice welcome.

Lynne said...

Great post, collage, mosaic . . .
Red breasted Nuthatch . . . first I knew.
Happy you had the visit.
Oh my . . . it has been a gorgeous fall here . . . I have been in awe of the beauty.
I have said it many times in the past days . .
We have been “gifted” with a magical brilliant yellow in the leaf color mix.
Not my favorite of the colors usually, but YELLOW takes the prize this year.
Happy November Days Eileen . . .
