More Fall Birds and a Coyote

Well, if our current weather is anything to go by, I'd say that Autumn is in full swing.
As I'm typing this, the wind us gusting with speeds up to 40mph and our backyard has become a shelter for White-crowned Sparrows, a lone Song Sparrow , Dark-eyed Junco's , Magpies and of course many House Sparrows.
Yesterday we had visits from a Spotted Towhee and 2 Orange-crowned Warblers.

Here are some new photos :

Palm Warbler




American Pipit



Black-crowned Night Heron



Yellow-rumped Warbler



Coyote - Here's a healthy-looking Coyote from last month

Hi Nick,
A beautiful set again.
I've to say the the pipit and the heron are wonderful because the light on them is fantastic! And the reflection of the heron is gorgeous! You are a talented photographer! Congrats!

Autumn's in full swing here too mate. Falling leaves everywhere.
Great shots again, and that Coyote is a beauty.

Wow - that night heron taking a walk is incredible! Wonderful photos as always. I've had no birds here - please send me some!

Won't be long that the butterbutts are back here. Beautiful photos Nick. :c)

We're in fall mode here, too. I'm in the US midwest and we had 40 mph winds a few days ago. My favorite saying is the only thing stopping the wind from Canada is my neighbor's house!

I love your pictures as always, Nick. The pipit eyeing the lady bug. The Heron walking - such an interesting shot. The lighting on all of them. Great shot of the coyote. I enjoyed all of them.

I like the handsome coyote. He looks to be in great shape. Your bird photos are very nice too.

Thanks for the visit.

...you always have such beautiful photos, Nick! I love the American Pipit looking at the ladybug. Did he nab it after the shot? The Night Heron striding through the water is spectacular. (Autumn is just starting to peak through....yesterday was low 60s...Hopefully I can get out at lunch today.)

Beautiful series Nick. The sharp details, lovely composition and beautiful bokeh makes the image of the Palm Warbler my favorite in this series.
