Subject: [NHBirds] Jefferson Birds
Our bird feeders at home in this northern White Mountain town of Jefferson continue to have 10-12 species per day. This is a list of what we saw for the hours we were home on Friday. Friends in the area with feeders also report good numbers of evening grosbeaks and a few redpolls.
8 Mourning Doves
2 Downy Woodpeckers
2 Hairy Woodpeckers
1 Pileated Woodpecker (heard only)
12 Blue Jays
35 Black-capped Chickadees
2 Red-breasted Nuthatches
68 Evening Grosbeaks (counted while perched in trees)
1 Pine Grosbeak (male)
3 Common Redpolls
2 American Goldfinch
7 American Tree Sparrows
The first redpolls at our feeders showed up on Thursday. The tree sparrows are increasing, probably as birds find a reliable source of food.

By contrast a three mile walk to Cherry Pond in Jefferson produced 1 ruffed grouse, 3 chickadees, 1 raven, and 1 downy woodpecker. There is little natural food around here except for black spruce and tamarack swamps that still have cones. We have only four inches of snow on the ground.
