Robert - recording dates makes things even more interesting than they are naturally. You should see the early/late spring arrival method I (unscientifically) use! http://bit.ly/lq81lZ
MM - yeah, these late ones in the fall don't seem to linger.

I too had one buzz through the other day! So excited even though he didn't stop to feed, just checking things out!

Part of the fun of birding is tracking the arrivals and departures of the migrating species. Pretty cool that you keep records to know when you have a late departure.

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
