We are expecting a Noreaster.
On the coast here in CT. The weather forecasters haven’t figured out how much snowfall we might get. I have heard anything between sleet and five inches.
Not too much snow in the scheme of things.. Other areas will be harder hit.
With leaves still on the trees still screaming out autumn, this could potentially be a big mess.
They expect power outages from fallen trees and limbs.
So- yesterday…I tried to savor what autumn looks like.
It hasn’t even peaked here yet.. Still allot of green that hasn’t changed to its autumn color.
Before the snow coats the colors with a blanket of white.
It’s chilly here in CT
We don’t leave here until after the 6th sometime.
We will do a slow migration south.
Stopping In NC for a month or so to visit Sicksta.
We may stop and visit a few birds on the way.. Not sure where yet- perhaps Cape May or the Outer Banks of NC.
For now- we wait for the storm.
To cover the color of autumn.
All photos taken with iPod touch.

Yesterday morning, i joined Jeff, Bella and Dad for a walk at Pfizer field. On our way Dad stopped at the lake so I could grab a few photos of the mist rising from the water.
While there,I spotted a flock of Golden crowned Kinglets foraging in the pines. I had great close up views of these sweet golden headed tidbits of a bird. Fun!
In the afternoon Jeff and I joined Sicksta Tink for a Bluff Point walk. Always a great walk there!
When I saw this rock I immediately thought..
I guess its a stretch..:)
Two nice walks…
I still have some photos I want to share from Sundays walk to Lantern Hill. Just haven’t gone thru all my photos.
These photos and post were all taken and posted via my iPod.
A reader mentioned yesterday, that they couldn’t click on any of the photos to enlarge them.. I am not sure how to do that with the blogging app I am using. I will check into it.
I am not sure these photos would be worth seeing larger anyway.
They are all iPod photos with limited pixels.

As most of you know, I will be blogging with a group of amazing Birders/Bloggers at Birdingblogs.com
If you go to the link above you will only see two posts. We have been rolling out posts for a week. They are they not showing up when you click on the Url for Birdingblogs.com We are able to see them if signed in as administrator, otherwise they seem to be invisible.
So, a few of us unfamiliar with the WordPress platform tried to figure it out..so far no solution. Our fearless leader, who knows WordPress, is off Birding and has no idea what is happening here. So..in the meantime, I will post updates to Birdingblogs.com here and use Twitter and Facebook to posts the new links.
Please enjoy the following posts

In the meantime….I had a blog post just about finished on our Sunday hike to Lantern Hill.
My computer went wacky and poof it was gone..all except the photos.
So, I got mad at my computer and haven’t yet gone back to edit the post.
I might decide to try today..this time I will remember to save a draft or two..I thought it was autosaved..but I guess not.
Saturday night..Jeff and I burned some of our past. 20 years or so of papers that we had saved..about 130 pounds worth..
My family helped sort thru the papers and burn them…it was great fun!
Yippee..Burn baby Burn.
