We're Baaaaack! (novembergale)
Some of our winter birds showed up today! A flock of Dark-eyed Juncos descended on my bird feeders. They most likely spent their summer in Canada and will winter on the south side of the Great Lakes.

Evening Grosbeaks!!! (novembergale)
I know this isn't a great shot but it's an important one for birders in this area and it's the best I could do in the rain today. Evening Grosbeaks showed up at my bird feeders today and I haven't seen them around here in years! I just read that this was going to be an irruption year for them and here they are. I sure hope they stick around all winter.
Golden-crowned Kinglet (novembergale)
These guys are barely larger than a hummingbird and flit around nearly as fast. They are in constant motion and it took quite a while for me to catch one sitting still for a brief moment.
Evening Grosbeak (novembergale)
More winter birds have arrived! A small flock of seven Evening Grosbeak have been visiting my feeders for the last two days. We haven't had them in several years so this looks like it truly is an irruption year for them.
Balmy Morning (novembergale)
Temperatures early in the day were in the 70's but quickly fell 20 degrees by late afternoon.
A Path in the Woods (novembergale)
Good Riddance! (novembergale)
Good riddance Sandy! She didn't do as much damage here in western New York as was predicted but we did have three inches of rain yesterday and 65 mph gusts of wind. Lake Erie calmed down just as fast as it was whipped up because it's the shallowest of the Great Lakes. You can see the contrast between the churned up sandy water and dark blue/green line on the horizon where the lake gets deeper.
