Most of the berries are gone from shrubs in our yard except for the bright red ones on the European Mountain Ash. Each day they attract many birds, Red Shafted Flickers and Cedar Waxwings are the most numerous. Black oil sunflowers in the bird feeders bring pine siskins, yellow goldfinches and an occasional house finch. Little snow fell through most of fall 2008, and temperatures remained above average. Still by the first half of December things were getting frosty and I captured some of this magic with my lens.
