We're frozen in here in Coinjock, but Skip walked around today and yesterday with some nice sightings on our property. One woodcock, and two snipe. The snipe flew up from a ditch that separates our property with an agricultural field. The woodcock was flushed from a wet, woody area.
We have the usual winter birds, with the exception of purple finch, which has not appeared as of yet. Also, only one or two goldfinches so far. They usually come in greater numbers in Feb/March.
A hermit thrush was spotted today in the woods.We're hoping one will find the bird feeding area. Often, we can tempt them with golden raisens. One year, we trained one to come to the raisens when we whistled.
