{BIRD NOTES} ~ February 08, 2012

Northern Saw-whet Owl


Bird Notes



A flock of Cedar Waxings came through yesterday and made short work of cleaning all the berries off our big high bush cranberry.  Such beautiful birds.

I just saw a Red-winged Blackbird here in Westminster West.... I

imagine if I have seen one, there must be many more... earliest I have

recorded in this location... Best, Tatiana.

Robins in West B.

This morning about eleven I was driving home via Greenleaf Street when I slowed to check out the old reliable ornamental crabapple that was again loaded with tiny apples as it is each year. There on the ground beneath its drooping branches was a flock of about 2 dozen Robins enjoying the fallen bounty. Spring-like signs though not yet officially so. It was still a welcome sight.
