The autumn colors are more enjoyable in the warmth of the sun, but weird temperatures and weather always have me weary- thinking about the big picture and what these weird patterns mean in terms of climate change and how it affects the wildlife who have to survive in these weird patterns.
Nothing too crazy to report from today's outing to Bush Terminal Park, in Sunset Park and Green-Wood Cemetery, also in Sunset Park. Enjoy:
|A group of buffleheads, two males and two females diving and traveling together just offshore from the park. Buffleheads along with many other "now appearing" waterfowl are sure signs of winter, as they fly South to us, from up North.|
|Green-Wood was fairly quiet, but I did run in to this very charismatic blue-headed vireo with a snack in its claws.|
|Looks like a seed from a pinecone?|
|Super cute little dude!|
