As almost all the leaves had fallen, Autumn was just about over, I noticed Birds started coming to my maple trees in my backyard. They must have been after something left in my trees to eat. Not sure if it was little bugs, some type of moss growing on the branches, but it sure was a pleasure capturing their presence while my trees still had Fall leaves. This is one of my favorites I took in Fall of 2011.
