A sign of fall fading away and winter sliding in :
The Junco’s are back !
This little guy was checking out the seed in the flat feeder , it was dusk ,just before the sun rise and I saw this little guy as I had to do a double take as I wasn’t to sure but as I got closer it was confirmed it is a Junco for what ever reason I said to myself YEAH !! another one of our winter birds are back , well despite the weather they are here for I like them anyways lol they are the last ones to arrive .
They are pretty skittish till they get used to the area again but soon warm up to me with my camera , Miggs running a muck of the yard and all the food that is out for them .
As the sun was rising I heard behind me a flock of Canadian geese honking as they flew over head .
It was so quiet by the time they were over my head I could hear the air whooshing through their wings as they flew . Miggs and I went for our morning walk , it was a little frosty but lovely with the sun shining and the crispness of the air was wonderfully refreshing . I really need to take my camera with me though as there were 6 White breasted nuthatch in a tree all playing and making that distinct sound of theirs ! I need to rig up away to walk Miggs and take photos , one handed photography doesn’t always work lol . The birds are all so very active now as they look for places to eat and snooze and make home for the cooler weather . I cant believe we are at the end of October already and this weekend we here in Ontario change our clocks back one hour so a bit lighter earlier in the mornings but darker earlier in the evenings YUK !! oh well it is what it is lol !
Until next time
Wishing you all a safe and
