Snow is on the mountains and Redpolls have returned to the Mad River
Valley! Yesterday Team Pipit reported a small flock near Blueberry Lake in
Warren. Pat Folsom reported seeing them there also. This morning, on my way
to Pat's house, I found a larger flock of about 50 birds in the birches at
Kingsbury Construction in Mad River Park. Then, on our way to Blueberry
Lake, Pat and I spied a second large flock of at least 50 more Redpolls at
the side of the East Warren Rd just south of Wadhams Stable.
It appears the winter finch forecast was correct!
