Hello Bird People,

Today was the 1st day since the 21st of Jan that I was not too sick to
be birding, Didn't really accomplish anything today other than just be
outside but that's a start.

At the open water area by the Dundee Rd bridge were Canada Geese (2),
Mallard (67), WOOD DUCK (1), Goldeneye (1), Hooded Merganser (1-F),
Red Breasted Merganser (1-M), Coots (2) & a Herring Gull (1-AD).

The land birds are pretty much at the feeders no longer eating from
the birch & alder trees. Here were Common Redpolls (~30), Siskins (2)
joined by Chickadee (3) & Junco (1). A few Robins were around as well.

Bird-Of-The-Day to the Redpolls & Runners-Up to the Siskins.

Al Stokie
