Nature Notes: Berries Birds Trees Frost

A few of my bittersweet berries have burst open to show off their fall colors.
The female cardinal below seemed to be lost in her thoughts.
The little finch also stayed in repose for a long time.
A male cardinal posed for me.
An American Robin was also very calm.
We had our first hard freeze over the weekend.
More and more trees are putting on their spring clothes in Raleigh, NC where I live.
The mourning doves are the same color as my deck.
I've been spotting a lot of brown thrashers in my yard and on my deck.
Last but not least a mockingbird.
