A cold front and north winds coming in tonight will probably signal to this young one that it is time to move on. It’s been a pleasure hanging out with him for the many mornings he has been around. I was trying to guess his age since he does not have the full gorget. I read that will happen over his first winter, so he is indeed a young one. He has certainly been defending the feeder like a pro, but he has the curiosity of the young. I’ve been wondering around in the yard a few times and looked up to see him on a branch or the power line directly over my head. I wish him a safe trip south. Click on pictures to enlarge.
