Quiet days at our feeders, Fri. & Sat.  Some Siskins (8 & 3) along with Goldfinch, but no Rusty Blackbirds.  Brown Creeper, even creeping across the snow.

A Red-tailed Hawk may be a factor in the lower counts.  We've had 2 or 3 strikes in the last weeks, more than usual.  

From Arthur Shippee:
03/07/15 - Hamden, North Lake Dr. -- 3 Pine Siskins;  Brown Creeper
