1. WCSP 2. WTSP 3. TV 4. RTHA 5. CAWR 6. BV 7. NOCA [female then male] 8. RSHA 9. DOWO [again female then male] 10. STAR Actually, #9 would have been either a NOMO, or a *BLJA, but a flash of white wasn't good enough for an ID.
11. Just missing out was a NOMO...
The sequence was not interrupted either by the Cardinals, or the DOWOs with the female appearing first then the male tying for the # shown, before the next species was seen. The first 6 were EZPEASY. 7 & 8 came within several hours. 9 & 10 took an additional couple of hours.
Suet only has been on the menu since NOV, but BOSS will be added now that JAN has arrived.
LIST SPELLED OUT: 1. White-crowned Sparrow 2. White-throated Sparrow 3. Turkey Vulture 4. Red-tailed Hawk [seen first by eye as a "highlight" against dark of S Mtn, then rust of tail visible with 10x bins...distance was 1/2 dozen miles at least, likely a pair] 5. Carolina Wren [heard first, then a pair seen much later] 6. Black Vulture 7. Northern Cardinal 8. Red-shouldered Hawk [heard then the same bird seen perched at a distance of ~1/4 mile] 9. Downey Woodpecker 10. Starling [alone perched high in a neighbor's tree]
