This morning, a lovely pair of Purple Finches and a pair of Red Bellied Woodpeckers were using our feeders along with Chipping Sparrows (and red squirrels), when suddenly a White-crowned Sparrow appeared on the ground below.
No Tree Sparrows today. One at least was still here on Sunday. Have been meaning to mention: in the Fall Creek watershed, visible off Red Mill Rd, looking East, the Great Blue Heron rookery is active with probably a dozen nests active and occupied by herons—for at least 2 weeks now. Apparently, as reported by residents next to swamp, there was a Bald Eagle regularly sitting on a high nest structure, but it left when the herons took up residence. anne Anne B Clark 147 Hile School Rd Freeville, NY 13068 607-222-0905 anneb.cl...@gmail.com -- 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/ --
