The difference of one day

I think migrant birds must have calendars or something. On September 30th I had 4 Summer Tanagers that were visiting the feeder and had been for a couple of days. I even had an Orchard Oriole on that day. The next day though…gone. The migrants are moving south quickly now. We will get a few through over the next few weeks but then the winter birds will settle in for a few months. I set the bird studio back up to see what I might capture during the migration. It is sort of sad to see the summer birds move on to their winter grounds. I am glad to see the cooler temps of Fall though.
