2 Sharpshins - moving N
1 Red-tail - probable resident
1 Kestral - picking at food - alas! something taking advantage of the dead bats around here! Neighbor has reported CROWS picking at dead bats in his yard too.
Speaking of CROWS - have witnessed a Crow with grasses and stick flying to tree across road from house. Haven't exactly nailed the nest yet. I didn't realize that nesting activity began so soon with crows. Interestingly, there are 3-5 crows that seem to be 'tending' the area and crow where the crow went with the nesting material. Can anyone comment on this behavior?
1 Merlin - long view from warmth of house this am. Bird clinging to tree top fighting the heavy winds
100+ Robins 'foraging' briefly on the frozen lawn. WOW
10 Great Blue Herons back on heronry E. side of RT 7 just N of Arlington. The waters underneath we still mostly ice covered. All were occuping (as in sitting) on nests or standing nearby. Did anyone observe these herons at an earlier date?
