So. The winter has passed and I have had No redpolls, common or otherwise; NO waxwings of either persuasion; No red breasted nuthatches; not even a barred owl. I did have a lovely pair of hooded mergansers last week in Willow Brook.
Feeling deprived in Brownsville,
Marcia (Can spring really be here, or will we get that promised snowstorm on Friday?) Sigh!

Hi- am new to Vermont and to posting on the list so hope this works...
Had about 50-60 common redpolls at thistle feeders this morning (29 March)
midst light snowfall, and one hoary amongst them (clearly paler than the rest
nd virtually no streaking at all on the underside).
