BIRD NOTES ~ Jan. 3, 2008


Bird Notes



At my feeders, I have just the every year winter visitors, with none of the unusual birds that many have been seeing. However, my "every year" visitors always seems to include just one, as far as I can tell, CAROLINA WREN.

---Steve Medved, Putney



Sunday morning a YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER made a brief stop on our willow tree. Seven PINE GROSBEAKS were feeding in the tops of some maple trees. About 25 CEDAR WAXWINGS also made an appearance.

---Dave Johnston, W. Brattleboro



Here are a few bird observations made over the Holidays at Lost Mile Rd, Newfane:

12/27 – BARRED OWL perched above the feeders.

  Hunting squirrels? Flew off after 1 hr.
12/26 - 2 COMMON REDPOLLS at feeder. 20 CEDAR WAXWINGS flew through   the meadow below the house. TREE SPARROWS at feeder. PILEATED WOODPECKER working a cavity into the old beech in the front yard.
12/23 - Solitary SNOW BUNTING perched on the deck.
12/21 - 15+/- COMMON REDPOLLS at feeder

These observations along with the feeder regulars – black-capped chickadees, titmice, white-breasted nuthatch, downy and hairy woodpeckers, and blue jays. The red-breasted nuthatches have been absent since November.

It's always the timing isn't it. I caught a waxwing concentration in the trees surrounding the Nissen outlet, in front of C&S, and behind the Red Roof Inn today, primarily from noon to one. There were well over a thousand CEDAR WAXWINGS. Of the 400 or so closest to me I found only two BOHEMIANS. I confirmed at least 12 PINE GROSBEAKS.

---Paul Miksis, Brattleboro



Please keep us abreast of what birds you are seeing, whether at home or on a trip in or out of the Windham County area.
