I have just started seeing a trickle of goldfinches coming in. Five today.
A welcome addition today was a single female evening grosbeak. Hope she
returns and brings her friends. Not as many nuthatches as last year but do
have both species. No purple finches. Plenty of chickadees and blue jays.
Juncos daily. Fewer woodpeckers than normal. Occasional turkeys. Flock of
Canadas flew over just recently.
