Good day to bird while bicycling...a mixed group of Sparrows on  Wellsford 
Rd. in Goshen included two Lincoln's Sparrows and one imm.  White-crowned 
Sparrow.  Nearby on Woodridge Lake were two rafts of Ruddy  Ducks, totaling 
14, as well as a Bald Eagle and Osprey.
 
Back in the yard were a peak count of 24 Purple Finches and a mix including 
 a Brown Creeper, RB Nuthatch, Blue-headed Vireo, two Palm Warblers, and 
numerous  Yellow-rumped Warblers, Kinglets, Cedar Waxwings, Juncos and  
Sparrows.
 
Yesterday was a good day to keep an eye to the sky while doing yard  work.  
"V" formations of approx. 50 Canada Geese headed S / SW came  over 
regularly, totaling about 1100.
