Passing these along.
From Annie Perko with Janet Weisner:
Rusty blk. birds continue at ground feeding area 4th day on and
off during day. Unusual as normally a one day event for yard. Siskins
and redpolls continue also in front yard at thistle feeder, 3 months for
siskins and over a mo. for Redpoll. We also saw the Bullock's just
before 9A.M. yesterday at Deb's feeder in Ellington. Thanks. A lifer
for me and my sister.
Forgot to mention around 10:30 A.M. on the 19th at Mill Pond in
Broadbrook 2 snow geese and one White Fronted were found
in amongst 2,000 plus canadas.
