I`d only hope all of you made thru Floyd as well as we did here(no
damage at all) in Rougemont! I drove around 10 miles today and found
only 2 white oaks down in a meadow. Both had a crowd of folks helping
clear them too! The Eno at Guess Rd was smoking at about 10-12 mph but
only up about 6 foot. The creek here that goes into the Flat and the
Flat were very big and flooding just outside there banks. I`ve already
heard that the local expert kayakers are planning a full house or a six
pack tommorrow. If you don`t know what that means it`s they plan on
running 5 to 6 triangle rivers in one day as they will be very quick
Anyway back to birds. I filled the feeders at 8:30 am and went out to
check my caterpillars in the garden and found 3 warblers. The
Black-throated Green was the first of the season here. Also there was a
female American Redstart and a male Black-throated Blue all were very
close to the birdbath as the trees were swaying a good bit.
I decided to check the creek at the bottom of the hill and looking down
I saw 6 Wild Turkey hens in the road. Knowing they had had a bad night I
turned around so they would be in peace.
Oh my caterpillars did just fine one Black Swallowtail cat must have
been a kayaker in a former life as it was in the top of a 6 foot high
fennel stalk all night riding out the storm. I found 3 Black swallowtail
cats, one chrysalis and 13 Monarch cats of which 5 are hanging from silk
ready to transform.
