I love the cooler weather and I love seeing all the birds coming in!
I have dark eyed juncos, black capped chickadees, chestnut backed chickadees, downy woodpeckers (in photo), northern flickers, house finches, gold finches, anna's hummingbirds, bushtits, and a song sparrow coming in. I also have the "snarlings" AKA starlings coming in but I try to ignore them.
I am anxiously awaiting the pine siskins and varied thrushes as the weather gets colder.
The trees may be barren but the birding is plentiful!
