Here in East Hampton on the Marlborough corner of town, I have posted the same strange thing. Sunflower seeds are sprouting instead of being eaten. I had a large raptor stop by and eat something white ( could have been a squirrel's underbelly) but when I reached for the binoculars, it took off. I know that it probably wasn't an eagle ( but it did have white on the back of the head) even though at about 20 feet away it sure looked awfully big. This was after the owl and a high flying raptor about a week before this episode. I have had a few tufted Titmouse and gold finches and a good number of downy woodpeckers and wb nuthatches. I also have seen my local female cardinal but not the male lately.
