Oh my goodness, I just saw this little guy do a desperate crash landing into my feeder. It's Oct 7, 2023 and 47 cold blustery degrees out there with a cold rain coming. It's been unusually warm until yesterday. In fact in the low 80's and then a couple days of 70's and as of today, a cold front pushed in with the coldest weather since spring. His feathers were very ruffled up and feed for what seemed like 90 seconds. This was a very late sighting for me. Sorry for the poor quality pic, this caught me off guard so had to rush to get a pic. Strangely, I just said to myself, maybe I should think about taking my feeders down today. Well, maybe just not yet:) I'm a little concerned about this guy. I recently reported what I thought was my last sighting for the year. I was mistaken:)
