Our weather had been warmer than usual until last week. Now we are wearing jackets. As you can see in the largest square, some fishers are also wearing hats and mittens. Brrr.
Moving clockwise: goldfinches are chowing down, this one is eating Echinacea seeds; cleaned-out sunflower seed heads (at sunset) show that blue jays and chickadees have been enjoying one of their favourite foods; leaves are falling from the trees; monarchs are migrating south but still finding clover nectar on their way; and canoes are still out but will soon be put away till next spring.
