|House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus)|
A common bird at feeders and at fruit trees during the Fall and winter.
|Ruby-crowned Kinglet (Regulus calendula)|
|Yellow-rumped Warbler (Dendroica coronata)|
As with the previous shots of the kinglet a little flash brightened up the scene while creating a catchlight in the eye of his dainty warbler.
|The Northern Shrike (Lanius excubiter)|
It was almost dark when I left for home, a few drops of rain had begun to fall, the remnants of a tropical storm way out in the Pacific was about to batter the BC coastline. Driving home there were Red-tailed Hawks hunting, Snow and Cackling Geese preparing for the deluge while the recently flooded cranberry fields held hundreds of Mallard.
By the time I arrived home it was dark, the wind was whipping up the red and yellow maple leaves in the driveway. It was time for a nice cuppa, a comfy armchair and a good book. C'est la vie!
