Nature Notes: Changes continue

Although my dogwood trees haven't changed this much, I spotted a dogwood in my neighborhood that is getting its full fall colors.

There are a few other trees beginning to get their fall colors.

Most of the trees are still green but beginning to have subtle changes.

There are a few male cardinals that still have their transitional feathers.

The catbird is on my deck wall. The biggest change is the cooler temperatures which I like.

Fall is coming! Will the cardinal stay all winter?

Lovely photo...thanks for sharing them with those of us who love birds. The cardinal was always one of my favourites when I lived in Ontario, but unfortunately, they do not make it over to the west coast...

Another beautiful series of photos. Love the cardinal with her ruffles.
