Yesterday afternoon around 5:00 I went for my walk up FR 10, and the
roadsides were littered with Robins, at least 60+. Also counted 11-12
Hermit Thrush who were very cooperative while I studied them to see if
they were Woods or Hermits. A large flock of juncos were twittering and
seemed to be following the Robins. All this between my house on
Brooklyn RD and the Silver Bridge, a distance of a quarter mile or so.
The thrushes were hopping around in the leaf litter looking for worms. I
was amazed to see so many of them and in such close proximity to the
........But the highlight was a Blue-headed Vireo heard
and then seen very clearly on my way down the mountain. A life-bird for
A little late, but Wed afternoon I was blessed with Evening
Grosbeaks: 2 male, 3 female! I was thrilled that they hung around for a hour or so, and haven't seen them since. It would be great if they were making a comeback!
