Magical Hour in Oct...

There was a wonderful avian convention in the backyard today - The last two days have been gloomy: it has rained most of the day today, but that didn't keep my feathered friends away....EVERYBODY was there, and in just one hour, these beauties posed for me, as well as a few others...If I had put them all in the collage, the birds would just be too small.

Helen: I'm not seeing many birds, they must have moved South. I gust love all of your shots in the collage. What a nice collection.

I did have a squirrel congreation in the back yard with four blacks and two greys at the Maple Tree at the same time.

What a great collage, full of such wonderful shots! I think the blueish red of the leaves adds such a nice color to the photos.

Wonderful collection! We also had rain and mist, and the birds just flocked to the feeders, especially the ones with rain guards.

This should be a framed print made available on your online store! It's wonderful! And that blue jay and red bellied really stand out!

So far I've only seen one junco and no others migrating in from the north. The extra feeders are in place and waiting for their arrival.
