It’s been a hot week on Roundtop Mtn., and I’ve had a busy week with a variety of evening activities, so my times of being out and about in the forest were more limited than usual for me. As a result, my observations have been more subdued or unsuccessful than usual.
I’ve been looking for nighthawks in the evenings—no luck so far. I’ve been looking for swallows that are not the ubiquitous barn swallows—ditto, no luck. Anything that moves is hiding, it seems to me. Or perhaps, the forest creatures have simply found that ultimate cool spot and aren’t about to leave it and let something else take it away from them.

Anyway, I just enjoy looking at the berries and the birds that come to the bushes for them.
