16 October 2021
It’s been three and a half weeks since the September equinox and every day is shorter than the last. Sunrise draws attention because it’s later every day. On Thursday the sky turned red before the sun appeared.
In the half light after sunset Morela prepared to roost.
The days are the same length as in late February during peregrine courtship. Morela and Ecco visited the nest as if they are thinking of spring.
Meanwhile most plants and trees have set fruit, including this streetside Callery pear.
And in Downtown Pittsburgh I found a directional message on our tallest building.
“There is the sky, so that must be Up.”
