It may seem that I fell of the face of the earth, at least that is how it feels. I just got back from 4 weeks in PA near King of Prussia with my family. I called home every night, and every night my wife said "It snowed today, when are you coming home?" I was able to get out and bird a little. Feeder birds: Bluebirds, Carolina Wrens, Red Bellied Woodpecker, and House Finches.
Amazing to me were the bluebirds, the locals were not impressed as they winter over there.
On a drive around Oley PA saw Horned Lark (life bird for me), snow buntings, Red tailed Hawks, TV, Savanna Sparrows, and Mockingbird.
On drive home today at Dingman's Ferry in Delaware Water Gap: 2 Bald Eagles.
Hope to see you soon, happy birding

Subject: [VTBIRD] Bald Eagles in Grand Isle
Two adult Bald Eagles were standing guard in the trees at the Grand Isle ferry
dock this afternoon watching over 27 Common Mergansers, a few Mallards and
American Black Ducks, and a host of crows and gulls. Most of the lake is frozen
in this area, but there is still a large patch of open water near the ferry
