The fall has been beautiful this year and I could see signs of the fall migration with the seasonal visitors to the local woods and on the water. I got in the habit of standing in the trees near Meadowrue to listen and see if I could identify the birds I could hear there in the mornings. It’s quite a lively spot! Next spring I plan to get down there early, with my coffee and camera in hand.
And there have been a number of water fowl that seem to show up one or two at a time, like this Ruddy Duck, for a day or so and then are off again. And a couple of Great Blue Herons can regularly be seen if you remember to look up!
