Another photographer in my club used to set out big mirrors to get the tom turkeys that entered his yard to display.

Good day noelcmn. I hope the sun is shining on you. Just after 7AM here and a bit chilly (27F, about -2C) but expecting a seasonable 55F or so by afternoon, and scarcely a cloud to be seen.
Brown-headed cowbird, a very common ground-scrounger here.

Good morning to you too Sir. Expected temperature at around 29 today-pretty good for autumn. Overnight its coming down to about 8. And Oh, we would not call -2 "chilly. We would call that freakin cold. The complaints-about-the-weather barometer would be sky high too. We normally get sub zero temperatures a few nights in winter. Coldest I can recall was -13 way back in the 90's, and that was about 100km from where I live. My vegetable garden suffered on that occasion. Nice birdie you got there.

Crowned crane taking a break. Coldest I can remember here was about -20F (-29C), but the coldest day, sharp in my memory, was Christmas 1980 when the high temp for the day was -1F (-18C). Hottest I can remember was 103F, about 39C. However, other Pentaxians, especially those living on the Great Plains, experience even greater ranges

FYI: Just for curiosity I searched out some extreme short-term temperature changes in the USA. 1936 was a year of extremes for the Great Plains, with the greatest temperature changes in the Dakotas. That year North Dakota recorded a statewide low of -60F (-51C), and a statewide high of 121F (49C). As an example of a single location within the state, Fargo ND recorded a low of -48F (-44C) and a high of 114F (45C) that year. On a single day in 1972 Loma MT went from -54F (-47.8C) to 49F (9.4C), a change of 103F degrees (57C degrees) in 24 hours. Residents must keep a variety of garments in their wardrobes. Montana holds the record for the greatest range from lowest to highest ever recorded from -70F (-56.7C; this is the all-time record low for the lower 48 United States) recorded at a mountain pass in the west end of the state to 117F (47C) recorded at two locations in different years on the eastern side of the state.

Pileated woodpecker, which like to perch high up. A deep crop of marginal IQ.

Are you trying to give me reasons to be glad I live in South Africa? Well, you are succeeding We occasionally get temperatures in the 40C.
