Suddenly the woods are quiet. It seems to have happened overnight. An occasional late-singing  red-eyed vireo by day, or a  thrush as evening falls, may break the hush. But in general, most creatures, even those that will migrate, have quieted down and are busy fattening up! Seeds and fruits had better hurry up and ripen. Fall will soon be upon us!
