Colebrook this morning was such a change...
I didn't expect to see what was here this morning - complete change from last
I think most of what i saw just dropped in this morning.
Just as I got onto the lower rd going north:
Loads and loads of Palm Warblers everywhere.(50?)They were flycatching from the
bare dead bushes.
Short ways north, i saw this dense cloud of birds in the air crossing the
reservoir - They were all
Pine Siskin - 200 plus! Never saw so many at once. They joined as many already
from the weeds. Get ready for more SISKINS to the south of here!
Just North a short ways - saw:
many Yellow-r-warblers,(30+) with some Palms and a few BT Greens.
Seems very little mix and mingle of species today. Most hanging with their own
Next were a number of White-T-Sparrow, (50?)with some Songs within.
Next I noticed much Robin calls - they were at the edge of the woods in big
all eating from Grape and other vine fruits in the trees - (est - 200+)
Just above the woods i saw 10 Raven kettleing up together.
I scanned for peeps, but none - However, across the res were at least 30+ A.
Pipit, probably more.
I crossed over the Mass line, and picked up many many more Siskin, Goldfinch and
other stuff - but was jumpin!
On way back, seems most bird were finished eating, and dispersing into the
Of note - their were few White-t-Sparrow and Junco numbers, so i surmise many
have pushed further south last night.
Bird of the day was two EVENING GROSBEAK seen flying south west just over the
Mass line into CT. I am counting them for my CT yearly list though i saw them
from being in Mass. Does that count?
