Early Autumn Backyard Nature in New Jersey.

For the last 10 days very few birds visited the backyard patio birdfeeders. I’m not sure if they got scared away by the Bald Eagle or Cooper’s Hawk — or maybe the neighborhood cat(s). I stopped doing the time-lapse image collection since so few birds were visiting.
