Today, took a ride in NW CT thru Canaan Mt, Twin Lakes and Salisbury areas. It
is amazing how dead this whole area was. Encountered a few groups of ROBIN, with
one group feeding in a Cedar tree with 2 CEDAR WAXWING, my FOY.
In a White-ash tree, we saw 2 male PURPLE FINCH feeding on ash seeds. Never saw
them eating these seeds before. Sure wish they were in with the other two winter
Finches whom I know eat them as well.
On Salmon Kill Rd in Salisbury, off to the west in one of the big fields, we saw
a pale form Rough-Legged Hawk on the ground with a kill. Very close near by were
3 deer. Don't know what was going on here. Both Twin lakes were 30% open, but
not one bird there cept a lone Herring gull.
