In the Northeast we can enjoy the seasonal changes so clearly. Today is a great example of these changing seasons, with decreasing sunlight and this big windy cold front pushing down through the eastern USA (click below to see the Nov.2 weather map, and the huge blue cold front line).
These strong cold winds have an impact on many things, including birds, insects, mammals (squirrels!), plants, water currents and temperature, mixing of stratified layers of sea water, increasing oxygen in the water, plankton and fish. We certainly notice our regular and accidental bird species migrating and changing over the last several weeks. A very exciting time of year!
Mother Nature is putting on a magnificent show, and the seasonal changes in our bird life gives us a direct experience with it!
Take care, as the covid19 virus is increasing again, Tom Robben Glastonbury CT _______________________________________________ This list is provided by the Connecticut Ornithological Association (COA) for the discussion of birds and birding in Connecticut.
