Bits and Pieces

Female red-shafted flicker on suet feeder.
Cloudy morning but clearing to blue sky and peach sunset. The clocks went back last night and so it goes.
The starlings are still a nuisance at the suet feeder. Will have to do something about that to protect the suet. Perhaps invest in one of the over-cages used to keep squirrels away.
The apple tree leaves are starting to yellow from the inside out on both trees. I'm surprised the green hangs on so long. The fig is three-quarters of the way denuded, with all the unripened figs remaining so it looks baubled for Christmas.
