Recent Feeder Visitors

There were new visitors to the feeders this week. Well, the first ones were not actually new to the feeders, but they were recorded on the BirdCam's memory card for the first time. First, a bright red cardinal posed conveniently in a beam of sunlight.

Red-winged blackbirds made an appearance as well. The image is my first record of them at the feeders this fall.

In addition to the birds, there were some red-backed salamanders here.

Both the red and dark ("lead-backed") morphs were present.
