Near this time last year, the fall colours at the Arboretum were around peak-time, so I came to the Arboretum yesterday and today to see if the timing is still similar. Sadly, the timing is a bit advanced this year so most leaves are on the ground now.
Yesterday, I came with a friend and we bird-watched as well. I forgot my binoculars and telephoto lens at home, and only had the OM 50 f/2 lens on my camera (which is why I returned again today). I discovered a new birding spot behind the Fletcher Wildlife Garden's Interpretative Centre so we spent some time looking for birds there.
We saw this bird which we think may be a Purple Finch (Haemorhous purpureus). This is a 100% crop of the original image.
