HI Alice

So glad you saw them there! On Jan 1, the Christmas Bird count day, I was able to locate them in a roost site, just N of 366 and just past Forest Home. There are two adults and two fuzzier juveniles. They tend to stay with their parents over their whole first year, and there are reports of youngsters being fed by parents into their next spring (ie almost a year old).

On Tuesday, they spent the (cold) day over near the Stevenson road composting facility, where we watch our crows. My grad student reported having them there for his whole observation period of an hour or more.

I will put out your obs from this morning to the whole list, if you would like. Or you can—just email Cayuga Bird List <CAYUGABIRDS-L...>.
