Nov. 1 – Fox Sparrow

Still rather quit in the area but picked up some “First Of Season” birds over the weekend.  Finally saw a small influx of waterfowl with a few Northern Shovelers and Ruddy Ducks (seen below) showing up.

Also saw my first American Tree Sparrows and Fox Sparrows for the fall.  The Fox Sparrow actually sat up for some decent pictures.

I was only out a couple of hours each day on the weekend but it was good to be out in the afternoon sun. Watched both a Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers feeding.

And a couple of Mallards enjoying the fall weather on a late Sunday afternoon.
