Here’s a sample:

The last Warblers of fall still grace us in October, some as confusing as attempting to calculate your credit card rates.

The Yellow-rumps and Palms are still flitting around the trees on route to their southerly settings, a little easier to spot now as the leaves have begun to fall.

Raptors return to Disposal road in the Meadowlands in October.

The Northern Harriers, American Kestrels and Peregrine Falcons put on daily shows taking advantage of the beautiful October skies as their background. The Northern Shovelers, Ruddy Ducks and Green-winged Teal begin to gather now and the Yellow-legs still linger along the shores.
