It was Thanksgiving Weekend, and a time when we sometimes see unusual migrant like Horned Grebes or Scoters. So we took a chilly tour on the lake and were thrilled to see the beautiful fall colours on the hill behind our cottage.
Some were finished and others were just starting. They will be around until the end of November.
There were none, and in fact, I have only seen them once in all these years. But two Common Mergansers were cruising along the point, looking nervous.
