This morning in the middle of a downtown snow squall a swarm of birds
descended on my ornamental crab apple. There were about 40 CEDAR
WAXWINGS, 3 ROBINS and 4 STARLINGS. They zoomed around for several
minutes before being scared off by a passing snowplow. Very exciting.
About seven or eight winters ago, we had a pair of white throats all
winter and have had them ever since until last year when we had our
usual pair plus maybe two more and nor we've had about six or seven all
this winter. The first winter the pair only ate from fallen seeds
I'm wondering where you all live? In the country? I have had one only
rarely and live in town in Ithaca. But the last few weeks I have had one
almost every day.

I noticed sightings of Tree Swallows at Breezy Point, Queens a couple of
days ago. Perhaps the radar is seeing early swallow arrivals as they
prepare to move up the Mississippi river valley?

I saw a nice flock of around 20 american robins on lower lake road
northwest Cayuga Lake January 23rd. There were probably even more.

I noticed some bird migration echoes in the lower Mississippi valley and
Texas early this morning. It's only early February. Birdcast shows this
early migratory push. see
The birds were moving north so they are not wintering birds

Each night, there are 4 Eastern Bluebirds tucking themselves into crooks and
crannies of a locust tree behind my house. They gather on the tree in the
afternoon and emerge at first light. I can't tell them apart so I wonder if
they each go to the same spot or if they vie for the choicest
Purple Martins also have been reported in the states bordering the Gulf for
the last 2 weeks or so.
