You know summer is over when the White-throated Sparrows show up. And it's officially autumn when the first White-crowned Sparrow is found kicking through the underbrush in the garden as had happened earlier this week.
I was watching my "Fatbirder" ranking go from 322 down to 402 as quickly as the leaves were dropping from our trees. That's what happens when I don't post soon enough! There just hasn't been the opportunity to get out and get photos over the past few days. It seems as you get older, your parts don't work as well as they used to. Hopefully, I'll be out walking by next weekend.
In the meantime, I'll keep my eye on our feeders for anything exciting in the gardens!
