Autumn Light

During the last couple of weeks, central Ohio has had it’s share of beautiful clear blue days and starry nights. Whether it’s a walk in the words at Battelle Darby or astronomy at a remote location not far from Columbus the views have been great. In the woods, with the sun at such a low angle even at midday, one sees shadows not usually found in the summer. There is a surprising amount of bird activity during these warm sunny October days. Ruby Crowned Kinglets, Rufus Sided Towhees, Yellow-rumped Warblers, Blue Jays, Chickadees and Tufted Titmouse are easy to see flitting about getting ready for less hospitable times.
