What If …


Teresa and I hiked at Stillwater Prairie Reserve this week. I shot these photos with my drone. As you can see, especially in the second photo, we are starting to see some color. Its still late this year. I have noticed the walnut trees have lost their leaves, but most of the trees are still green.

On a different topic: I am not trying to make a political statement with this story. Clearly, by the number there has been a decline in some bird species. This is a sad read: Climate change threatens hundreds of North American bird species with extinction, study says.

So, what do the photos have to do with this issue? The migration is almost complete. I saw a few birds, but mostly of the non-migratory variety. It was so quiet. It made me think, what if it was like this year around .. and the birds of summer were not around. That would be sad.
