Winter on the way and birds are scarce.

It is still early in November but it is starting to feel like winter. We are getting fewer and fewer birds each week. I am still healing from the broken ankle so I haven’t been able to look for birds while doing my daily tasks (which used to include walking the dog). We haven’t seem many of the Fall Sparrows that usually appear under our feeders each October and November. We are still taking drives to see the birds, but most of the time we come up empty. The local lakes and ponds are still open but they should soon freeze up.

We aren’t getting that many dramatic birds, particularly when compared to last year.   Still we are recording what we see.  We did see all the Zonotrichia Sparrows, but not at home and not all on the same day. The last of the Summer birds seem to be gone. We saw our last Eastern Bluebird on Oct 23rd. I apologize for some of the soft pictures. I took a few of them from behind the window.

Perhaps we will get a few warmer days and see a final push of migrating geese and ducks, but that seems to be a vain hope this year.
