Now we’re semi-closed (visitors welcome! But please call a few days in advance to make an appointment), we don’t have as many people watching our feeders.Wonder which species might’ve come by and not been noticed…
- Black-capped chickadee
- Tufted Titmouse
- Dark-eyed Junco
- Blue Jay
- Hairy Woodpecker
- Mourning Dove
- Downy woodpecker
- American goldfinch (winter plumage)
- Northern Cardinal
- Ruffed grouse
- Pileated woodpecker (swooping over parking lot, calling on 12/27, the 2nd visit)
- Purple Finch (12/28)
Naturally, we also saw the usual cluster of red squirrels and gray squirrels.
Looking forward to National Bird Day on January 5th! And keep track of our more formally collected data: we contribute to Feeder Watch.
