I was wondering if others are having an unusual feeder season this year, I am.
It has certainly has been much quieter then passed years here on lake
Pauline. No winter finches or Evening Grosbeaks. I had one Pine Siskin back in
late November, non since then. No Red Breasted Nuthatch, even the Blue jay
numbers are way down. First time here on the lake that there is no wintering
Mallards or Canada geese and the most surprising is no Barred Owls. There has
been 3 around here on the lake for as long as I can remember.
This is what has been seen around here lately, any mix of this list on a given
day is what makes up my feeder day right now:
American Goldfinch 50 ++ this number goes up and down with the weather
Tufted Titmouse 2
Blue jay 1 or 2 now and then
Dark-eyed ( slate ) Junco 7
Morning Dove 3
Hairy Woodpecker 2
Downy Woodpecker 2
White breasted Nuthatch 2
Some days its just chickadees. What are others experiencing?
