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.
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!
