Backyard Autumn Nature in New Jersey.

Some bird activity at the bird feeders — American Goldfinch and Blue Jay. But then the rogue Black Squirrel figured out how to get up and work on the sunflower seeds. Afterwards, I reconnected the electric fence cable to the bird feeders. It shouldn’t impact the birds since they don’t touch both the ground and feeder at the same time. The squirrel on the other hand has two paws on the grounded center post.

Adventures of iRobot.

Time-lapse video from the perspective of an iRobot floor vacuum. Images taken with a Garmin VIRB-360 camera. I am actually impressed with the iRobot. I thought the floors were relatively clean, but had to stop and empty the bin several times. I guess my beard has been shedding. The robot does this random walk as it moves through each room. It automatically stopped and switched direction when it came to the stairs to the Great Room. At the end of an hour when the battery was getting low it found its way back to the charger.
