What did I see this week? The start of autumn! We’ve had frost several times now, and while it heats up as soon as the sun comes up, it certainly is chilly on my early morning walks with Spencer. I’ve even had to get out his sweater already. Hopefully there will be some lovely leaves changing colour in the coming weeks.
I had some interesting bird sightings this week, I hope you enjoy.

He most certainly spotted you. I don’t know what pert of BC you are in, but the wildfires down here in Eastern Washington have pushed some birds our way that we don’t normally see this time of year (for example Cedar Waxwing). Perhaps you are seeing this effect as well?
I’m in the Prince George area, and new to the area as well, so many of the birds I am seeing are quite new to me. In fact I spotted one today that I haven’t yet been able to identify, but all I had with me was my phone to take a picture.
I use a guide from National Geographic, but online, the Cornell School of Ornithology has a fairly decent identifier. (Don’t want to be rude and post the link on your site, but easy to find with the Google machine) 🙂
I have the Sibley bird app which I’ve had some good success with, I haven’t given this mornings sighting a go yet, as the photo is pretty awful… dull overcast light and trying to zoom on my phone 🙁 Fingers crossed I’ll get another chance!
