Lots to share

I’ve been trying to get outside at least an hour a day for the past few weeks.  It’s definitely getting chillier out (although we did have a freaky warm day recently!) and I can hardly believe Halloween is only 2 days away.  Fall migration is winding down and many of the leaves have fallen from the trees.  Here are some pictures from the past week.

Sunrise in the woods–magical!

My first Eastern Towhee!


This past weekend, I traveled to Northern Michigan for 2 days.  Although I saw surprisingly few birds (except for a memorable Bald Eagle flying directly over my car), the scenery was absolutely stunning!





Returning home again, I was happy to find my second new-to-me bird this week:  Pine Siskins:

Along with the Pine Siskins, Cedar Waxwings, Robins, and House Finches were enjoying all the fall berries:

And finally, one of the best things about winter coming–I can see the hawks in my woods much more easily.  This beautiful Red-tail Hawk landed right outside my window and I was able to get a shot because the leaves have fallen.

Enjoy your Halloween, and I hope to have lots more to share soon!
