Is This Farewell For 2016?

With each passing day we move much closer to the typical winter wildlife shutdown in Iowa. It is only mid-October and I continue to see many species, but just because they are here today does not mean they will be here tomorrow. I wondered as I saw the three species featured below if today would be the last time I see them for the year. I hope not, but won’t be surprised if it is.

Eastern Bluebird (I really don’t expect to see bluebirds again for a while.  I could be wrong though!):
