Autumn, Migration

The leaves are just beginning to change here, forest stands have some nice colors around their edges. I think it will be a wondrous fall here in New England. The summer was cool and wet. The trees love to grow in that type of summer so they should be primed to have a showy fall with all the nutrients that have been provided into the leaves.

As for the birds I do not have much to say. I was out in the woods twice in the last week but they were as much mental health walks as bird walks. Many things have left the area and I suspect there are those few northern things that spend the winter here starting to arrive. October is a month of lots of movement for the migrants, even though many get a start or even finish in September.
