As the days get shorter and the mornings get crisper we realize fall is here. Of course with fall comes the magnificent color display as the leaves change color. This year a few of our trees will not make it to that part of their life cycle due to the fact that some were uprooted because of severe weather at the end of August into the first part of September.

Two of the more colorful birds at Honor's Haven are the bluejay and the bluebird. As the names imply both birds are blue, but that is where the similarity ends. The bluejay is somewhat larger with a crest similar to a cardinal. They tend to be quite aggressive. Their normal call is often raucous and loud. I say normal because they often imitate other birds such as the Red-shouldered hawk. In addition, both male and female are similar in color.
