I didn’t think my backyard birding could get any better today, but it did. I had this single “grackle” hanging around. Eventually I realized it was too small for a grackle. I thought, Rusty Blackbird? So I looked it up in Sibley and yes, that’s what I have. It’s a new life list and yard

I just had my first ever at home male Indigo Bunting! He was thinking about going to the feeder. I hope he returns, but he’s probably just passing through. Sent from my iPad -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME

Just had a first in the yard---a Great Blue Heron. And we don't have a pond. The biggest squall of the day just passed, having brought a pretty dense snowfall. The GBH may have become disoriented and just picked a landing spot with no trees or brush to cause a hazardous landing. This morning a

We had a cheerful and bright (almost neon orange) golden-crowned kinglet today eating insects and singing in our old pine tree. A new yard bird for us. Michele -- -- -- Cayugabirds-L List Info:

I added four new yard birds last week and another today: the white-throated sparrow! It was perched on a tall wooden fence and then foraging in the soil of my garden. I live downtown near the high school and was so surprised as I've only seen them in more of an edge of a forest. Sent from my

I have been out 5 times since the end of February, scanning the southern skies for migrants of some kind.  So far nothing.  But today I got a new Yard bird when I watched a REDHEAD (as in the duck) circling the Firehall 4 times low.  Not sure it was migrating, but it probably thought the

While we have often seen SNOW BUNTINGS from the yard, this morning we had one we could see from the kitchen window near the patio. It stuck around to pick the droppings from under the feeders. This a first of year for us and a new yard bird. Quite a pretty little bird. Yesterday while looking

Besides being a new yard bird, it is a new computer-room-window bird. I saw a big dark shape cruising just above the trees outside our window and looked closer to ID it. It was a mature Bald Eagle. Wow! What a thrilling bird. Earlier today, Shirley found our first Flicker of this winter on

We have two BROWN THRASHERS today, a new yard bird for us. I have not been sitting and watching steadily today, bit getting some window time here and there while doing some renovations. Who knows what is out there that we are missing. Michele --

Went out with the dog and took the binocs looking for snow geese (didn't see them yet) or what else might be arriving. Instead spotted several large lumps in the 70' basswood in the neighbors yard which at first I thought were the crows that roost there often (I shot photos of 17 at sunset a
