> Comments: First time I have birded in this place on the south side of
> Rt. 133 since Atlas 2. It consists of steep, wooded, mostly deciduous
> hillsides and a powerline cut along the southwest edge, crossing one of
> the two hilltops.
> 16 species
>
> Downy Woodpecker 2 One juv, with red on crown, making it (probably) a
> male. Kilham (1983) wrote that some females of both downies and hairies
> also show red crowns as juveniles, but apparently only a few.

> Eastern Wood-Pewee 5
> Eastern Phoebe 2

> House Wren 4 family group on powerline
> American Robin 2
> Pine Warbler 3
> Eastern Towhee 9 in the forest as well as on the powerline
> Indigo Bunting 2 Female feeding a fledgling on powerline. The young
> one had a blue rump and a hint of blue on the wings, so I'm leaning toward
> a male.
> American Goldfinch 2
