While golfing last evening in Dixon we notice many trees in beautiful autumn colors as a cloudy cold front was moving in and a large flock of blue-morph Snow Geese fly overhead, we saw two Mute Swans sitting on the bank of the lake as four Blue-winged Teal flew in to join the two Pied-billed Grebes floating about. One of those Norman Rockwell "First images of fall" moments.
