One of those rare mornings that I am able to get to the lake for perfect ambient light. With the sightings of the American Coot and the Forster's Tern, there is obviously more southern movement of birds, indicating migration, but at a fairly early stage. This appears to be two weeks early, so it makes me wonder if we could be in for an early winter. Let's see how accurate the birds' biological clocks are this season.
