morning so we went through the sanctuary looking. Soon we were wishing that
we still banded, but after 40 years we called that project ended.

Kestrel Haven is off Fitzgerald Rd and a private wildlife sanctuary
protected by the Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust.  Visitation is

This morning,large flocks of juncos were everywhere which may account for
all the radar returns. Mixed in were other migrants but viewing conditions
were horrid. We did confirm Fox Sparrow and Flicker as new year birds.
Tantalizing were two thrushes not seen well enough for positive ID but we
"felt" they were Wood and Hermit. We did spot two warbler species but no
definitive field marks for an ID.

It appears that the weather will give us another possibility tomorrow. Last
night, Sue's moth lights  and bait boards were very well attended by many
