Jordan Lake. Today is the last day of autumn. Often double-crested cormorants look to me like they are bemused and perhaps a little worried. I wonder if this one is sensing autumn’s turn into winter tomorrow, Wednesday.
Jordan Lake. There are three days left until 21 December and the beginning of winter. Kate is making the most of the last of the autumn weather. She is one magnificent bald eagle!

Bald Eagle Autumn Song
Jordan Lake. Bald Eagle Autumn Song: millions of years of being / sky empress of North America / each fish, tree, human seeing / she passes through autumn’s rising mists / my earth-bound heart now pleading / free me, tell me, how too can I fly?
Jordan Lake. I quietly explained to the sassy American crow that if he would just perch still for a moment, I would make him the star of the day. So what does he do? He made a marquee out of himself and the autumn leaves, didn’t he!
Doc Ellen’s Natural Minute 12/20/2021
Jordan Lake. Every year I chase the opportunity to capture both a full moon and a sunrise at the same time. This morning I caught the last full moon of 2021 as it was setting and the rising of the sun for this day. Stay warm! #DocEllensNaturalMinute
