It appears that most of the migrants have left my yard except for a few late Sparrows. Some are still hanging around be it the Song, White-crowned and White-throat. But the last warbler I have seen was a lonely Palm hiding in my spruce trees. So it appears that I will be left with only the locals until the northerners appear. The only real good news is that Sharpy has not been seen for the past two days, hopefully he has discovered another buffet area to watch. I've attached a few pics of some visitors to my feeding stations the past week, As you can see most are of my regulars whom will be with me til next spring. I hope you find them enjoyable.
One thing that disappoints me is the lack of posters on this site. It sure has decreased substantually in the past year. It appears that there are only about 4 or 5 whom post with any regularity, down considerably from the past. Hopefully with the coming of colder weather the postings will increase.
Anyways, both I and the missus will still be checking here pretty well daily to see what is going on in the neighborhood.
We wish all a good fall of birding and for more successes in the upcoming 2017.
