2018-12-09 Thread Barbara Bauer Sadovnic
We just saw this large hawk out the window, across the field. It sat in the tree for awhile, took flight and hovered over the field, went back to the tree, moved to a telephone pole, and then left. Aiken Rd., just west of Halseyville Rd. in the Town of Enfield. Rough legged? Swainson’s?

At least 100 redpolls were at the corner of Aiken and Tucker Roads, and in the weeds further up Tucker today. I’ve seen them several times here in the last few weeks, but this was the first time they let themselves be photographed (badly!) and counted!

I went in search of the redpolls again today - I hadn’t seen them since the snowfall January 19. First I turned up 5 American Robins in the spot on Tucker Road where Rachel Lodder and I have seen the redpolls before, and was going to be happy with that, but when I returned maybe a half hour
