Stopped by the corn fields on Ferry Road in East Windsor this morn on our
way to some last minute Xmas shopping at nearby LL Bean.
LOTS of birds: 75+ mixed flock SNOW BUNTINGS and Horned Larks (more
Buntings than Larks), 200+ mixed flock Red-winged Blackbirds and Grackles,
50+ flock Pigeons, 25+ American Crows, several overhead flights of Canada
Geese, few Ring-billed Gulls, 1 Coopers Hawk and 1 Northern Harrier doing
their share of keeping the flocks moving, and 1 immature WHITE-CROWNED
SPARROW in hedge row with a few Song Sparrows.
Xmas gift for the birds was the snow melt. They seem to be enjoying the
bare fields again.
Happy Holiday to All
