Autumn Backyard Nature in New Jersey.
Birds of the day viewed at the birdfeeder and in the backyard: Mourning Dove, Blue Jay, Black-capped Chickadee, Tufted Titmouse, European Starling, Northern Mockingbird, House Sparrow, House Finch, Dark-eyed Junco. I think this is the first time I have observed a House Sparrow at my house.
Birds of the day. Individual images in the slideshow are available in my PhotoShelter Gallery.
Nervous fox checking out the patio. Hope it finds some of the rats.

I am a scientist by training (Eckerd College, BSc; Caltech, Ph.D.). I worked for 27 years as a Chemist in the Pharmaceutical Industry developing processes to manufacture medicines for human and animal health. I now spend my time as a photographer and world traveler. My interests include the natural world, wildlife, landscapes, sky, and seascapes, travel, and astrophotography. I look for unique ways of viewing the world and presenting my images. I have traveled to over 55 countries in six continents, often on Semester at Sea voyages. While at home in New Jersey, I spend time on home renovation and expansion of a wildflower garden/meadow.
