Karen and Harney and I saw few birds during a Saylorville jaunt this morning, though I enjoyed viewing an immature RED-HEADED WOODPECKER at Cherry Glen, a (presumed) EASTERN MEADOWLARK at the top of the dam, and five COMMON LOONS on the lake. At the home feeder the RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH count is now three. Along with their white-breasted cousins and a couple of chickadees, these busy little guys are going through a sizable tube of black oil sunflower in just over two days. Could be an expensive winter if they continue to hang around. But I like to sit around and watch them Sitta around !
