Their Back !


A sign of fall fading away and winter  sliding in :

                                                                     The Junco’s are back !

OCTOBER 2014 (3 of 12)

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 .

OCTOBER 2014 (7 of 12)

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 .

OCTOBER 2014 (11 of 12)

            As the sun was rising I heard behind me a flock of Canadian geese honking as they flew over head .

OCTOBER 2014 (12 of 12)

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

Loved to hear the Canadian Geese when we lived in Illinois. Good pictures of them, despite one-handed photography.

The juncos are such cute birds.

The geese I hear overhead here now are the ones still coming from further north and stopping for a break. The ones who are here in the summer have been gone now for some weeks.

The juncos are here, eating up a storm!
It seems that autumn is progressing very quickly..clocks back and snow on Saturday.
I apologise for saying the bad 's' word.

Love those flight shots of the geese.

Our Junko's are playing hide and seek with me. Some days I see them under the feeders, and now for the last few days they have disappeared. With snow in the forecast I'm sure they will appear again!! Happy Halloween.

Lovely photos, especially the geese!! Fall has gotten into full swing for us too, but none of the winter birds yet--Soon, I've no doubt. I did finally turn the heat on for the first time tonight, it's supposed to get near freezing--burr!!

Sweet little birds those Juncos, glad to see they have returned to your feeders.
I love hearing the honking geese overhead !
Turning our clocks back too this Saturday, it's still dark at 6:30 every morning when some of the kids are boarding the school buses.
Lovely header, so Autumn !

I'm definitely not thrilled about switching the clocks back either. Very nice shots of the geese and juncos!

Beautiful photos! There are a lot of Juncos around here this week too. They move fast! Enjoy the weekend.
