It's Definitely Fall!

Yup, it's is. It was cold this weekend, just as it was everywhere else in the north east. It is much to soon for me. I want the warmth of the sun to wash over me. But there are advantages to the cooler weather, such as no need for a/c, no sweating at night, less bugs and of course, birds!

This is a rose breasted grosbeak female, the male is with her and is a first winter male. He looks just like the female except a little darker. A rose breasted came through last spring and then I never saw it again. Now there are two of them. I wonder how long they will stay

Here is a shot of both of them and as you can see, one is slightly darker than the other. Now if they would only turn around!

So far, we have the usual gang: chickadees, tufted titmouse, nuthatch, downy woodpecker, cardinals, and lots of doves that eat up all the food!.

I will keep posting pics of birds that visit my feeders!
