Birds in our Locale
Our summers provide us with bountiful gardens and our open spaces provide us with beautiful and inspiring creatures. The bird photographs this month were taken at Starved Rock State Park near Ottawa, and around Morris, Illinois, by Brian Murphy.
Brian is an amateur photographer who enjoys getting pictures at sites around his home. Open spaces away from the city are favorites of many Illinois birds while others love the backyard feeder.
Here comes fall ...

Our speaker will walk us through some of the things we can do to ensure a nice sleep for the garden and, hopefully, a beautiful awakening next spring.
