0800 A flock of 4-5 E. bluebirds, in the company of a Carolina wren, working their way close around my house this morning, on Hile School Rd. I have no feeders or other food sources yet, so they presumably like the shrubbiness mixed with open areas.
Beyond that, it was still winter: a flock of goldfinches, one bluejay foraging in yard. At ca. 0730, 20 American crows out of a probable roost N of Ed Hill Rd. Yesterday a rough-legged hawk visited the area around neighbor's gut pile across Hile School Rd from my house, to which American crows responded by diving straight down over and over. This seemed a stronger response than they have given to the 2+ red-tailed hawks also visiting regularly.
