'The Tern of The Millennium' have long gone from McIvers Island, another breeding season done.

Even the gulls have pulled out, for the most part. Low-flying cormorants, locally knowns 'shags', are on the move, too; and, high-flying geese are seen heading westard of late, taking the tourist route out of town.

Winter is coming!

Ravenous blackbirds, starlings, blue jays, and smaller flyers found lesser aggressive in the fall of the harvest, linger around local backyards to avail any handouts they may come to avail (read: wild bird seed The Mis'ess bought uptown to help fatten the littler ones for their long flights) en route to warming........
