I took a drive out to upstate New York to visit family last week. Along the way I saw signs that the leaves are starting to turn. This seems to be a bit early, however some of the more stressed trees will be the first ones to change.
This is a warning, if you are planning a foliage trip this year, it is best that you start planning and watch the foliage forecasts. It may come on early this year. We have had some cooler temperatures in the evenings.
About the photo, Sunday I went out to Appleton Farms. I’ve seen this Red-tail around before. It flew into a Red Maple tree that was changing, the only one along the roadside. I only was able to get one frame before it flew deeper into the tree.
Be sure to visit Wild Bird Wednesday this week.
