Autumn Backyard Nature in New Jersey.

Birds of the day viewed at the birdfeeder and in the backyard: Mourning Dove, Blue Jay, Black-capped Chickadee, House Finch, Dark-eyed Junco.

I am trying to figure out the problem with the following slideshow. (10-Decmber-2021 Update: PhotoShelter provided a fix to the slideshow problem).

Birds of the day. Individual images in the slideshow are available in my PhotoShelter Gallery.

Time-lapse Videos of the Day with Red Rover. (1) Completed assembly of the 4th Shelter Logic storage shed. The frame remained up overnight (no strong winds) prior to attaching the ground anchors. This one has a rounded roof, and we will see if it does better when the snow comes. (2) Assembled a Titan 3-Point Subsoiler Single Tine Ripper, then used it to pull out some old agricultural fabric.
