All of the blue jays are here on Davis Road in Randolph Center! We
have at least 14 to 18 everyday, along with more than a dozen
mourning doves and goldfinches. But only one pine siskin showed up
very briefly one day.
We do have the usual numbers of the usuals:
chickadees - 8 to 10
hairy and downy woodpeckers, maybe 2 of each
white breasted nuthatch - 2
1 male cardinal,
2 tree sparrows
1 titmouse who occasionally breaks away from our neighbors' feeder to
normal number of crows and ravens
evening grosbeaks once in awhile
We had a goshawk here in December, a Cooper's Hawk and a Sharpie
recently and yesterday a group of 8 - 10 waxwings. But they were too
far away to rule out Bohemians with our scope.
So the only thing that I notice is the lack of siskins or redpolls.
Usually there are a lot of them in alternating years, i.e. siskins
one year, redpolls the next. But it's only almost February. Let's
see what the Groundhog has to say on Tuesday.
