Here’s something notable … a couple of days ago (see an earlier posting) we had a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker on one of the garden feeders, a visitor who should have left for the south some time ago. Turns out that late Sapsuckers are being reported in small and scattered numbers in Quebec this year, but it was unusual enough for eBird to seriously query it. At the same time we have had one of the Carolina Wrens around most of the summer. We remember a very few years ago when Carolina Wrens were very unusual in this region, unusual enough for comment and even for twitchers to travel to see them but now, while still not everywhere by any means they are part of the background bird population.

So this Feederwatch morning, both came to the same feeder at the same time and stayed long enough for a photo.
