Yes, it’s still fall. Other than the snow storm we had in early September, we have been getting relatively fine weather, considering it’s November already.
Just two days ago, it was one fine, fall day. The temperature reached 13C (55F) when I took these photos, which is very warm for us, especially with the sun bursting in full force. Joggers were wearing shorts and T-shirts.
The glorious golden yellow has changed to brown now, and tree branches are bare…
and the river as blue as ever, matching the clear, open sky:
Gulls linger, who’d want to fly south with weather like this?
Too comfy here, this Bonaparte’s Gull is not flying away any time soon:
Nor the Lesser Scaup:
Mrs. Mallard is having so much fun here… I don’t want to go, she yelps:
And I add my voice, don’t leave just yet.
We’re not going anywhere, Dear, Mr. Mallard assures her.
*Note: The Mallards are some of the birds I still see in the colder months. With others who stay, they make winter a bit more enjoyable.
