This morning my sunshine has given way to a foggy, frosty, 0c cold morning. Winter is telling me it's right around the corner.

I would love to see your western, this morning there was 10 or 12 dropping in from the tree's around me. the last of the maple leaves are falling and hitting the ground this morning making a sound like frozen paper as they bounce off of everything.

I guess we cant leave out the Canada Jay then..

Lovely contrasting setting for this bird.

Thank you ! It was pure luck that roughly15 of these birds were perched on this tree and I could shoot them from my car

These are ok, Pagman, you managed to "thread the needle" and get shots of these birds through a dense lattice of sticks. I like the B&W conversion on the first one.. is that an Ovenbird?


I think its a mistle thrush here in the uk.

P.


Some stuff.
