{BIRD NOTES ~ March 23, 2015}

Bird Notes




 Today (3/16)  at 1:18 in the after noon my first sighting of a Turkey Vulture this spring.  It came in low over the trees behind Price Chopper like a great streaming galleon with a fair wind in it's sails.

A small flock of Pine Siskins (9) and Goldfinches (5) were at my backyard feeders this morning along with a couple of Downys, a Hairy and a pair of Red-bellied WoodpeckersFive Juncos, 2 Chickadees, a pair of House Finches, 2 White-breasted Nuthatches, 2 Titmice and several Mourning Doves also stopped by.  A single male Cardinal checked things out, but didn't appear to stay.   Maybe he'll be back when the activity quiets down.

On Saturday the 14th I looked out and sitting on the top of one of our bluebird houses was a lovely little MERLIN.   A first for us!

Anhinga On Our Deck This Morning

We thought this poor bird was injured as it lay motionless for a while on our deck this morning.  We got within a couple feet of it trying to ascertain if it was even alive.  Gradually it started peering back at us, fluffing its feathers and eventually, flew off.  Must of been taking a morning nap!


These pictures are from my friend Sharon Kropa who lives in Manchester but is now in Hilton Head, S. Carolina where these photos were taken..

---Barbara Powers, Manchester Center, VT
