I've still got a few Fox Sparrows, too. I can't ever remember waking up to them singing in my yard for over a week before. It always seemed that a few would be present a few days in the spring and fall, and that was it. No doubt our lingering winter is to blame. They don't go far south for the

I had a Field Sparrow in my window feeder today and I think it was there yesterday too, but didn't recognize it right away as I have never had one in the window. Funny. Thomas Hoebbel Photo~Video www.TH-Photo.com

I now have 2 Fox Sparrows! They’ve been here for two days now. I had one about five years ago which stayed for minutes. I don’t get great numbers of birds like you do in the Ithaca area. I’m delighted. I also just had a flock of Cedar Waxwings sitting in a tall maple. Now and then they

Speaking of unusual feeding, I saw something new just now: the Wood Ducks who visit my pond each day, typically to dabble in the shallows or wade in the spillway, climbed up the bank and onto a large ant hill (about eight feet wide by ten feet long), where they seem to have begun poking around

No Fox Sparrows, but I plan to observe and listen very carefully tomorrow morning. Heard a drumming sapsucker this morning and another lone Barred Owl last evening when I was taking down the feeders. Also a lot of Flickers flushing from roadside areas and yards when driving. You can have some of

I think everyone is struggling to find any kind of food in this spring that is mostly devoid of insects. Leaf litter would be a logical place to look. Linda Orkin On Fri, Apr 20, 2018 at 3:40 PM, W. Larry Hymes wrote: > While walking through Mundy Wildflower Garden today, I

While walking through Mundy Wildflower Garden today, I came across both RUBY-CROWNED and GOLDEN-CROWNED KINGLETS foraging together. That in itself is not so unusual. What was really strange, however, was they were foraging among the leaf litter *on the ground*!! That's a first for me! We

The UPLAND SANDPIPER continues across the road in a field from 149 Owen Hill Road in Lisle, NY. This was the original field it was found in yesterday. The bird at times hunkers down and is hard to see. The location I put on ebird is the exact spot we saw it. If you put the ebird map in satellite
