Sunset Walk at BHCL

I walked at Waseeka Wildlife Sanctuary today at lunch.  The leaves were pretty.  There were a couple of Hooded Mergansers way out on the water, an Eastern Phoebe, Red-Bellied Woodpecker, and Blue Jays to entertain me, but I didn't get any good photos.

Oriental Bittersweet

Wish this was in focus, but how cool was that?

Biggest Sassafrass leaf I have ever seen

 I see you!

After work, I had a lovely walk at Breakneck Hill Conservation Land, watching the sun sink into the horizon.  There were Yellow-Rumped Warblers and Palm Warblers galore, and one Palm Warbler landed on a tree right next to me and hopped closer and closer all after my CAMERA BATTERY DIED.  I also saw a Hermit Thrush hopping along the trail.   I didn't have a spare battery on me, either,  and the sun was casting some beautiful light on the fall leaves.  I hurried back to the parking lot and changed my battery, but....most of the good stuff was gone.  No more warblers.  Sunset was past peak.  Oh well!  I saw it, and I loved it!!!

 Love those clouds

 and autumn colors have definitely taken over from summer

huge flock of blackbirds or starlings that flew out of the woods and toward the setting sun

Good night, moon!
