'Sorry to anthropomorphize, but I've been frequently seeing forlorn-looking "Swamp Hawks". Last week Red-shoulders were perched on poles on Route 110 (Shelton), on poles on Route 8 (Seymour), on Gaylord Mountain Road (Hamden), and a couple other locations. I've two that do a lonely vigil over a small seep in the neighbor's yard (Bethany). Virtually all my February sightings have been orange-breasted adults. 'Time to put out some chicken!
Ravens continue to be common as well. I've had several fly-overs during my commute on the Merritt Pky (Milford/Orange).

This morning got inundated with Redpolls! counted 70 but were more.
No Hoary within.
Also, my Hawk feeder is working just fine. Placed a road killed Squirrel on
it, and a Red Shoulder Hawk took it within 15 mins. They take sell by date
Chicken legs as well. Glad to do my part in this bleak winter.
Its a bad one when I saw a Squirrel eating Liken from a branch. How
nutritious can that be?
