Yesterday and today I donned my snowshoes and struck off for a walk up 
through the meadows and woods with my binoculars at the ready.  Pretty 
much the same cast of characters on both afternoons ....... a flock of 
about 25 Cedar Waxwings    a flock of  about 35 Robins all feeding on 
the bittersweet at the edge of the meadow.  A little further into the 
wood was a female Hairy Woodpecker working pretty hard at a dead tree. 
 A couple of White Breasted Nuthatches and a few Chickadees here and 
there in the woods.  As I was heading home throught the meadow a flock 
of 5 Bluebirds flew right over head  ....... today only.
