Sun Mar 8 01:21:02 EST 2015
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
