About 2 p.m. I went to fill a feeder but had to shovel to get to it. As I stopped to rest I glanced up & saw an adult BALD EAGLE flying westward towards the lake, almost overhead, slightly southward! Nice treat!
Several HOUSE FINCHES, about 30 GOLD FINCHES, & 8 or 10 C. REDPOLLS have been chowing down & fighting over sunflower & niger seeds at the feeders here by the house. Backlighting keeps me from identifying all that are up at the hill feeders & a lot are there. Lots of house sparrows, for sure. I heard several gunshots while I was outside. Haven't seen any geese today & only a wee flock yesterday. Fritzie, in Union Springs, where it's very windy, 30 deg. & sorta' blizzard-like. -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsRULES http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://email@example.com/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/Cayugabirds 3) http://birdingonthe.net/mailinglists/CAYU.html Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
