More Signs of Fall

As I noted yesterday, migrating shorebirds are a sure sign Summer is fading and Fall is nearing. Another sign are large flocks of birds gathering, either migrating or getting ready to migrate.

This small flock of Starlings was part of a much, much larger flock that was flying back and forth across Theler on Sunday.

Flocks of finches were feeding on berries in the trees

and were easily confused with flocks of Cedar Waxwings, like this juvenile,

also feeding on available fruit.

Still waiting for signs of sea ducks to officially confirm Summer is over.

What do you think?
