Good afternoon all-
Regular cast of characters at the feeders this morning: juncoes, white breasted nuthatches, no. cardinals, tufted titmice, red bellied woodpecker, and occasional house sparrow. A dozen northern flickers nearby on the ground where drifting snow exposed the grass. More exciting visitors included one RED BREASTED NUTHATCH, a YELLOW BELLIED SAPSUCKER and a copulating pair of RED SHOULDERED HAWKS in a nearby hemlock.
A couple of robins stopped by just before the storm a few days ago. Haven't heard the woodcocks in a week--hope they're finding enough to eat in the thawed and soggy spots.
Spring is slowly springing. Stay warm and hopeful!
