Fall Is Coming

If the movement of the purple martins is any indication, then fall is on it’s way. As of Thursday August 16th all the martins in town have departed town and are presumably heading southwards. This is about normal for the martins as they normally depart about the 15th of the month. This year I think the martins took a bunch of their friends with them as the bird population is almost nil right now. I haven’t seen any gold finch, purple finch or just normal finches, or even robins for that case, around in the last couple of days. Heck even the sparrows are in hiding.

Now we’ll have to wait until the fall and winter guests show up to entertain at the feeders.

  1. I guess the robins were just away visiting for a couple of days as I saw 4-5 of them in the back yard today looking for food.

    There also seems to be a lot more flickers feeding in the grass in the last day or so.
