The aftereffects of storm Sandy coupled with yesterday's not-so-great weather were reflected in thescarcity, absence and/or low numbers of most of what used to be usual species.  Grasses, thickets, holly and red cedar berries were ripped out by wind and surf, eliminating important winter food sources, resultingin very few robins, sparrows.  Starlings were surprisingly very low in number.  Juncos and Chickadeeswere in decent numbers.The one highlight of the count was 3 Razorbills swimming off the SW part of the point early in themorning.  They were not relocated during the afternoon.Thanks to Debby Ethridge for her much appreciated assistance on the count. From Meredith Sampson:12/16/12 - Old Greenwich, Greenwich Point -- 3 RAZORBILLS.                Old Greenwich, home feeders -- 2 RED-BREASTED NUTHATCHES, 2 PURPLE FINCHES. A sad side note:  a Barred Owl was found dead on Shore Rd. in Old Greenwich last Friday morning. Meredith SampsonOld Greenwich
