You had better luck than me, Steve. I did go up for about an hour at 12:30 and did not have a single bird flying — not even a local Red-tail. Small flock of SNOW BUNTINGS and HORNED LARKS at the east end of Mt. Pleasant Rd. and a RAVEN calling somewhere to the west. Overly optimistic I guess!

[cayugabirds-l] Tame redpoll? Lethargic?

2015-03-12 Thread Antonia Saxon
