ALREADY ?

Is it me ???
Isn't it a little early
 for the finches to be losing their summer yellow?







I thought I was seeing things..
 

I guess it goes along with this crazy weather we've been having.


This little Downy Woodpecker sat there for ten minutes.
He's a cutie and frequent visitor.
They are the smallest North American woodpecker.

I agree - seems much too early for the changes, but I've been seeing them too. Looks like there is going to be an early winter ahead.

Oh no....I'll have to check my finches!!

Does that feeder solve the squirrel flurry? I need a new problem solver.

It's been a crazy year weather wise, that's for sure!

Neat pictures! I've noticed leaves falling for the last week or so-- hard to believe it's that time of year already!

I hate to admit it, but I guess we are nearing that time of year. Seems the summer, what there was of it, flew by!

Awe, I love watching the birds. We're still having hot weather and will for some time. I hope to get back to somewhat normal with my computer time. August was very busy. Take care.

Gosh...where have I been...never knew the finches lost their yellow with the change of seasons. Goes to show how much I know about birds. Have noticed the trees changing in early August...and thought, oh, oh, early fall. Hopefully there is still an Indian Summer in october.

I didn't know about the change of colour...and I wonder what colour they will have after the change... ( I have to confess my ignorance on the subject!)
