Squirrels here are fattening up and are burying nuts and berries. Usually don't see that here till around Halloween.

Some geese here were flying north yesterday afternoon, what felt like a late July evening. Guess they didn’t get the memo from their friends up north!

Some of you on here have spoken about acorns, but I’m not familiar with the folklore. With that being said, I was in Highland Park yesterday and during some stronger gusts, lots of acorn were falling off the trees. Squirrels are having a feast this Autumn.

Looking back to our summer in Texas I don't recall it ever following this pattern.
Brutal heat June and July. Highs 110-115. Then in August everything changed to rain, more wind. Lower temps.
Some rains quite heavy.
This trend has continued to this day.

A week of rain forecast with accumulations of 3"+. The past 2 1/2 months have been so odd.

Same here, it was like 2 springs, 2 summers and then "boom" cold and rainy starting July 31 until now, with exception to the 8 days to open this month.

From NE thd, but could've been my post for Marshall, lol

 

 

I can’t remember a period where we had such  intense t-storms in non summer months. Going back to that beast in February two years ago 

Certainly it will make for an interesting study one day. Last week Matt Noyes said he thought it could be something that may be studied for years

Borrowed from an Amwx post. It's not exactly squirrels heading south, but might be just as ominous, lol

 

 

While I was raking leaves, the sandhill cranes were winging their way south with V's upon V's heading south. That is a bad sign when the sandhill's give up the ghost and say they are out of here. Only bad news in the future now.

 

Sunday afternoon heading home from BC I noticed a massive flock of SHC's myself. Not familiar with their migratory habits tho tbh

Cardinals don’t migrate around here that I know of. I saw ours all winter, but they don’t sing till early spring. I think their song is a territorial thing, warning other cardinals of their claim to a certain territory.

The Turkey Vultures arrived about mid-March with that strong storm that melted everything. They seem to follow the snow line north very closely. Whereas some Eagles will winter in NMI and feed off of dead (and frozen) deer, apparently the "road kill crew" vultures don't like their hamburgers frozen. Guess that's why I always see them hangin around Wendy's

I think I saw the first vultures here about the same time.

Haven't written in here in a long time.
Couple of seasonal oddities to monitor here for me...
Usually geese do not migrate back north over Oklahoma, to my knowledge, yet I hear some almost every day lately. Something I have at least never noticed before.
Seeing moths already. That's very strange also. Usually the larger, colorful moths aren't out until late May.
