{BIRD NOTES--February 13, 2015}

Bird Notes



Four Bluebirds eating red berries in a winter hanging basket by my front door in

Putney last Tuesday.

Backyard Feeder Watcher

My wife, later joined by me, have been for a few days, observing a Barred Owl. It's been perched on a shepherd’s crook next to a bird feeder. It seems quite brazen sitting there in full daylight.

---Alan Stewart, Wilmington, VT

West B. Bohemians

About 8a.m. on Feb. 1, five Bohemian Waxwings were perched in the top of an oak tree at my home on Bonnyvale Rd, W. Brattleboro. No Cedars. It's been two years since I've seen Bohemians in Southern VT. Hopefully more will follow!

---Dave Johnston, West Brattleboro



A Note from NY

More snow today, bet you are really snowed in.  We have about 10 inches on the ground.  Nothing rare at the feeders this year. (Last year a “Harris’s Sparrow” ) We had 2 Common Redpolls for a short time and an occasional Pine Siskin.  Hope all is well. Stay warm! 

---Jan Fitzpatrick, Campbell Hall, NY



Busy Feeders

Nothing exceptional here Al, nuthatch, bluebirds, chickadees, woodpecker, but all very welcome. Look forward to Bird Notes.

---Peter Seares, Black Mt. Rd., Brattleboro



Hello all:

   We have moved from VT to CT (in Dec.), thinking it might be less snowy!

But we have just had about a foot of snow, huge drifts from snowplowing, and a travel ban on cars on state roads till 2 p.m. today.  The birds have appeared at our seed box, mainly sparrows, juncos and bluejays.  Hope all is well with you and yours "up north".

---Judy Myrick, of Comwell, CT
