Harbingers of winter

Olivia, the self-proclaimed “best bird knower in the family,” is relishing the return of the Dark Eyed Juncos this fall. Bryan recently spotted a Red Breasted Nuthatch and a Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker (a name that sounds more like an insult, if you ask me), but I think I have the best spot of the season in this rather handsome Barred Owl.

Last night, Bryan had a dream that he saw an American Redstart here, but that hardly counts.

What’s flitting about your yard lately?

One response to this post.

    I saw my first American bald eagle of the season fly across the shoreline down front this afternoon!
