Juncos and Salmon, Two Signs of Late Autumn
The Juncos arrived the middle of October.
They migrate from way way up north to the winter in the milder climate of SW Michigan. Their common name is Snowbird because normally it snows about the same time we see them at the feeders.
This year we were blessed with a snowless October. It was great. I'd love a snowless November as well.
The salmon are swimming up the creek.
We've been promised a "chance of snow showers" the next few days, but the day temperatures are going to be above freezing so it isn't going to stick.
