I ran out of bird feed last month. Now that I have a reliable vehicle again, I picked up a bag of black (oil) sunflower seeds and a bag of mixed bird seeds. It took a couple of days for birds to come back to the feeder. It was cold enough for the birdbath to freeze over last night. The birds that show up now are the ones that stay for the winter. So far today a mix of sparrows, finches, titmice, woodpeckers, and blue jays showed up. The birds seem only interested in the sunflower seeds, and ignored the bird seed mix containing cracked corn and other seeds.

While bringing in the cameras from the previous nights star trail shoot, I noticed some clouds and colors developing at sunrise. I managed to get a few shots with my Leica CL camera before the colors faded. The prediction is more rain tonight and tomorrow. The county already sent out local flooding warnings again. Notice most of the leaves have fallen off the trees. Now to decide, rake & mow the leaves, or leave them in place to become better fertilizer.
I noticed some yellow color out my window just before sunrise. I ran out with my Leica CL camera to catch some of the color before it faded. The prediction is more rain today and tonight. The county already sent out local flooding warnings until Saturday morning.
