This morning I saw 5 dark-eyed juncos hitting on the sweet gum seed heads on my property in White. I still have 6 yellow-rumped warblers eating the wax myrtle berries all thru the day. I figure they're either new arrivals or maybe the ones I reported Oct 18 bulking up to move on now that it's starting to get colder. I usually have only 1 or 2 over winter in my yard.
I also got a chance to go out to the Taff Rd & Brandon Farm area. At the medium pond on Taff : 2 1st winter male northern shovelers
13 killdeer (wow) some
1 dark duck too far off to ID (not scoter)
The surf scoter may still be hanging out. There was a dark water bird which looked like it was floating with it's head tucked in its wing. I did see some white markings but not conclusive enuff to claim a positive sighting.
