Birds in the Snow

Thursday, February 16th, 2017
American Robin, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 16 February 2017.

American Robin.

Five or six inches of white, wet snow fell overnight. When first I looked out back I saw a male cardinal, a flock of robins, and a downy woodpecker foraging for breakfast.

Northern Cardinal, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 16 February 2017.

Not long after, at Beech Hill, I saw a Red-tailed Hawk (same bird as yesterday?) and little flock of buntings in flight.

Bird Report is a (sometimes intermittent) record of the birds I encounter while hiking, see while driving, or spy outside my window. —Brian Willson
