Years ago, like 15 or 20 years ago, Aldredge Creek had a more natural creek bed. Then, we had a 50-year rain one night and several houses along the creek were flooded. So the city dredged Aldredge (huh – that almost rhymes!), exposing these scraped-over rocks along the creek bed. Great turtle-tanning beds to boot!
Why would these small minnows proceed in a line…
…congregate, seemingly to feed…
And then go back the same way a few minutes later?
A Mockingbird in November. These little things can be very territorial in springtime when nesting. I remember one spring when a nest was in the parking lot at work. Five O-Clock Charlie, as he was named, would come along and dive bomb arriving and departing employees from an altitude of about 3 or 4 feet above the ground! Like hot sauce, it was scary at the time, but funny now that it is over.
Maybe it’s just me, but this guy looks like he just rolled out of bed and started his day!
A very sloppy Great Blue…
