3/6 New Milford yard - just saw a flash of wings and 2 RED-SHOULDERED HAWKS - one landed on a branch and began eating what through bins turned out to be a fish! It had been hanging out over the stream (as well as the feeders) but its last catch there was a small rodent. Twice before that it snatched prey from a Cooper's hawk and a sharp-shinned hawk, so it is enjoying a varied diet.
The male KINGFISHER is also here every day now - the Housatonic is completely frozen and my stream is not. Also 6 PINE SISKINS showing much variation in plumage.
