{BIRD NOTES} ~ November 25, 2015

Bird Notes



Audubon’s 116th CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT will take place for the Brattleboro area on Saturday December 19th.


There will be 25 to 30 people divided into 7 teams that will scour our 15 mile diameter circle and list the species and the numbers of each. At 6:00 p.m. we will all gather at Hollie Bowen’s and Paul Love’s beautiful home at 19 Whipple Street in Brattleboro to compile and talk about all the great birds while enjoying a wonderful pot luck supper. Please join us and bring a dish to share. Even if you didn’t participate this is for ALL members.


If you wish to participate in any manor, please contact our compiler, Bob Engel:



I Just saw a Carolina Wren at my suet today. It loudly announced its arrival. As the feeder is very close to my window I managed to see him very well. He wasn't as dark as the pictures but his tail and eye stripe and his big voice gave me all the clues I needed. First time bird. Anyone else  seen him around? Have a great Thanksgiving.

A Greater Yellowlegs, a Brant and a Bonaparte Gull were seen at Turners Falls,MA.


An immature Red-tailed Hawk dropped into our yard not 6 feet from where we were standing, then quickly took off again. It was probably chasing a feathered meal. A Fox Sparrow (WITH NO TAIL) has been hanging out with a couple of White-throated Sparrows enjoying the white millet seeds. Also a Carolina Wren has taken a liking to our suet feeder and stops by nearly every day for a snack. A Red- bellied Woodpecker shows up now and then for that same reason. A Sharp-shinned Hawk tried unsuccessfully to grab a perched Slate-colored Junco last Wednesday.
