Barkhamsted yard - Hoary Redpoll with 33 Common Redpolls. This is one of the two Hoary seen on the GBBC in Feb. I suspected he was still around but confirmed this morning at 9:20am.
Also, 3 Fox Sparrow and 2 Rusty Blackbirds.
Redpoll numbers dropped from a high of ~500 a couple weeks ago shortly after a ~500lb bear visited our second floor deck to claim one of the thistle feeders. By the way, bears don't like/eat thistle seed!
