It’s been a rather mixed fall. We’ve seen a lot of unusually warm weather with mid-September temperatures in the low 30s (Celsius) -or about 85 F. Birders have been anxiously watching and hoping for changes in conditions, especially anticipated are cold fronts from the north-west to stir things up.
It’s now mid October and most birds that head south have gone. We’re seeing White-throated and White-crowned Sparrows, Ruby and Golden-crowned Kinglets, Hermit Thrushes and a few lingering Yellow-rumped (Myrtle) Warblers. Any day now Dark-eyed Juncos and Fox Sparrows should show up.
