The Return Trip

The Return Trip.
 
Just as in Spring, we get a lot of the migrant birds come over our mountain. In Spring heading north, in Fall heading south. Yesterday and today I heard then observed some Rose-Breasted Grosbeak migrating through. I haven’t been able to get any images, so this is an image from this Spring as they worked their way north. I typically don’t put the seed feeders out in the summer or early fall, but with the number I am seeing I decided to help them fuel up for their trip. Fall is my favorite time of year with the cooler temps, the colors and the wildlife.

      They are beautiful birds. They can clean out a feeder in half a day too! I guess when you look that good, it takes a lot of fuel to maintain it!
