Very quiet until 7:30 A.M., then the Dark-eyed Juncos came in, followed by a Downy Woodpecker. I was happy to see the White-throated Sparrow which makes short, infrequent visits show up shortly after. Thomas Wood, Menomonee Falls, Waukesha County

My first bird was a Dark-eyed Junco as well. We had up to nine of them feeding all day. The only other birds spotted in our feeders were several Mourning Doves and three Black-capped Chickadees. I am battling a nasty cold so I stayed in all day. I was hoping to get Paradise Springs Nature Area (Eagle, WI) to get more pictures of the Belted Kingfisher that we spotted and photographed on Saturday, December 29, 2018. The bird was loud and active in the late afternoon.
Good birding to all of you in 2019. 2018, my first year birding, was a blast. Thanks to everyone for your ongoing reports. Because of them I was able to see and photograph many birds, some of which I never knew existed in Wisconsin.
