On Thanksgiving morning I watched this cardinal having his own feast.
He was enjoying the bittersweet berries.
These berries aren't edible for human consumption but birds love them.
The day after Thanksgiving I spotted three cormorants at Shelley Lake.
They like to perch on the old dock pilings.
It was a cold afternoon and there weren't too many people at the lake.
A friend was visiting and we had walked all over downtown in the morning and then around Shelley Lake in the afternoon so I worked off some of my Thanksgiving dinner from the day before.
I wish I had the little boy above's energy.
It's starting to feel and look like winter.
There are more and more gulls arriving.
I enjoying seeing the gulls who arrive in the late fall.
The evergreen trees around the lake keep some green going even after the deciduous trees are bare.
The gulls were flying low along the lake.
There were a few Canadian Geese hunting for food on the dam.
It looks like I have a collection of bird bath ice which is the result of providing the birds with fresh water.
We had a beautiful mackerel sky Saturday night.
