Speaking of singles, aside from the groups of blue jays and chickadees it was all singles in the field last Saturday. A single yellow-bellied sapsucker, a single flicker, a single wren (scolding, what else?) and others, silhouetted against the sky so I couldn't identify them.
It isn't until this time of the year that I can see just how much Virginia creeper there is around here. The other foliage in the picture is mostly that of the wild grape--which did spectacularly this year, covering almost everything.
