Our World Tuesday: Third week in November

It's starting to feel like winter.
We've had back and forth weather with the coldest nights and days being clear and the rainy ones being above freezing.
Most of the trees are bare after a windy day but a few are clinging to some leaves.
On a warmer day a bunch of American Robins monopolized the bird baths.
I have robins year round but in the winter they stick to the trees for the most part and I don't see as many at the bird baths.
The oak leaves are falling fast.
The shots with the most leaves on the trees are ones I took earlier last week except for one tree I'll mention later in this post.
The bare limbs make it easier to see the birds grasping for food that's left.
I love this time of the year.
The house finch, sparrow and cardinal were hanging out at a bird bath I needed to fill.
I usually wait to refill the bird baths until the birds have flown off rather than interrupt them.
The past few days I've had to get ice out of the bird bath in the morning.
This morning the bird baths refroze during the day so I emptied the ice out again mid day.
The tree below is my neighbor's and I can see it from my bedroom window. It is always the last tree to get it's fall leaves and the last to drop them.
The male cardinal below looks like he is trying to tell me something.
Perhaps he was trying to remind me to get the ice out of his bath which I did.
The bluejay below was going to the bath and back to the tree every few minutes.

You achieve so much with your photographs

Pretty picture of the ice in the birdbath … it looks like cellophane wrap over the leaves that are trapped. As winter approaches I can see how providing drinking water will become an ever-increasing task.

I love your birds, Carver, but they're outshone this time by that amazing tree you see from your bedroom window. What a glorious sight that is.
