It’s that slow time of year again, when the ducks haven’t arrived and Fall migration is about over. People are finding a few good birds, but mostly it’s just the regulars. I’ve been hanging out at Sandy Point, Quiet Waters and Greenbury Point. I made a single stop at Thomas Point, where the road is badly in need of repair.
Thankfully, we’re in the midst of an irruption of Siskins RB Nuthatches and Evening Grosbeaks. I got the QW ranger to fill up their feeder (They lost their regular feeder filler) and it seemed like only minutes until the first Siskins showed up. Lots of Goldfinches, Titmice, Chickadees and a Red Breasted Nuthatch were eating as well.
So, I’ve of lots of feeder images, and images of birds approaching the feeder so the feeders don’t always show in the picture. It alway feels a little like cheating to stake out a feeder, but I did get a few good pictures.
