November 2008

We have at least 6 Ruby-Throats buzzing the towers here at Castellow. Look for them around the front island planted with firebush and all along the Butterfly Garden in front of the Nature Center.

We have also had a Rufous Hummingbird staying around the south side of the front island.



The Celosias are blooming prolifically in the butterfly garden much to the delight of the painted buntings.
