This time of year, nature creates some of the most beautiful array of colors and blending variations of the color chart. The Nature Center is alive with bird activity this fall, as I am noticing a dozen or so Eastern Kingbirds.

Well named, kingbirds are highly territorial and aggressive, and are often seen badgering crows, raptors, and any other large bird that overflies their domain. I witnessed this because they chased off some sparrows, as it looks like the sparrows were too close.
