This is Tern Lake, at the intersection of the Seward and Soldotna Highways. Today there were many Trumpeter Geese, common mergansers, a mallard and an American Wigeon in attendance. I was on my way home from a hike closer to Seward and had to stop and get a few photos. It was a beautiful Fall day.

That first photo is gorgeous and evocative Cyndie. So, from day to day are the day lengths changing much? ;-)

In the three (?) Falls that I spent there, I liked this time of year a lot and found the changes invigorating. Strangely I found the springs more unsettling.

Darwin, we are losing about 5.5 minutes of daylight each day.Only in Alaska do they announce the daylight lost or gained each day on the news. It is rapidly changing. I go to work in the dark now, sunrise is after 8AM. I still have sunlight after work. It is hardest for me in the 8 weeks of dark before and after work in late January and February. Fall is my favorite season and it is especially beautiful up here. Spring is too messy for me, all the slush and mud, ick.

Yes, the Prothonotary is unusual in California although there is a second one being reported in Monterey right now.

Beautiful shot of the Townsend's Solitare

The Nelson's Sparrow is casual, hasn't been present in the last few years.
The Prothonotary Warbler is sorta the same deal, but a little more reliable.

Got this guy today too...

If ya'll haven't been to Oceano State Park in October, and you live in California, you gotta make the trek!

All the warblers show up here sooner or later.

And Philadelphia Vireos, Blue-headed, Yellow-green...

Loving it!

Fall rules!

Anyone else getting any fabulous warblers?

It's like a 3 week window around here when it really cooks.

I pretty much just go to one or two spots because that's where 99% of the sexy birds show up.

After fall migration it'll be off to Carrizo Plain for burrowing owls and mountain plovers.

Mike, aren't they called Tri-colored blackbirds?

Got several phone shots of this little guy in Taos last month, initially thinking he was a hummingbird. Not. But ridiculously cool none the less. One of them actually sat on my hand for a minute.

No warblers here.
I have been making multiple attempts on the local Lucy's and the Blackpoll with no luck.
