These snowstorms really pack in the birds at our feeders. Today we had an exceptional array.
A Northern Goshawk perched in the scrub oaks, 10 feet behind all our feeders, for over an hour. The sun came out and she left. We called her a female because of her bulky size. During her perch, bird activity in front of her diminished not at all!
During her perch, we counted 16 Spotted towhees, 40 juncos, a dozen Pine Siskins, 6 Blue Jays (one 'jaying' at the Goshawk from a foot & a half). Two Song Sparrows, 2 Tree Sparrows. One Fox Sparrow, which we have seen sporadically over the last 10 days (just before the first snowstorm).
I plan to post some photos on eBird, but it will take a while.
Hugh
