13 Backyard Birds with Gorgeous Golden Fall Foliage

13 Backyard Birds with Gorgeous Golden Fall Foliage

On a recent photoshoot, I was able to capture closeup shots of some backyard birds with gorgeous golden fall foliage. As the days get shorter, the sun also begins to set sooner, casting beautiful backlight on my subjects.

We had our first snow of the season this morning! To end October on a high note, here are 13 “lucky” photos of my backyard birds captured before the leaves fall off for good.
