With a new cold front that has blown through, there are signs everywhere that cold weather will soon be taking over. The first sign this morning, other than the blustery cool breeze we were experiencing, was a male American Goldfinch in mid-molt. He was about half the brilliant yellow and half-dull gray - a little haggard.
Also saw, and heard, my first undulatinig “V” formation of Canada geese making their way south - and actually going in that direction.
Lastly, on Monday I saw my first wooly catepillars crossing the road that I drive to the store on. Didn’t get a chance to see which color was thicker, so I guess I’ll have to wait to see what winter brings.
