Subject: [ND-BIRDS] Common Redpolls
Jan 12 2022 Barnes County
Rural Valley City, birdfeeders

Recent weeks have shown Common Redpoll numbers increasing daily.
First one, then two, then five, then ten, and now 10+.
They show up about 8:30 and feed on the niger thistle especially. They are
often also on the ground, pecking at spots on the snow.

Among them the 40+ House Sparrows are increasing too.
Two days ago, Jan 10, 2022, an owl of unknown type was grabbing a rabbit
from our trees by the house.

American Crow swooping and battling wind by the airport this morning.

Sharp-shinned Hawk harassing birds at the feeder. Unusual time of year for
that one.
Great-horned Owl- has been visiting the trees by the driveway almost daily
in recent two weeks, probably waiting to get a chance at the rabbit.

White-tailed Deer - seen bedding down in our tree row south of the house
almost nightly. Appears to be a male, settles into the snow and in the
morning gets up and wanders off, nibbling on fruit tree shoots- chokecherry
and plum thickets.

Birds of interest:
