One male Red-winged Blackbird with my morning feeder birds in Danby.  This is a different individual than the first year plumage male I have had all winter.  Spring arrival as much as 2 weeks behind past years.    Could it be the snow coverage in the mid-Atlantic states be keeping the birds from moving?   By the first of March on average the Canada Goose has returned to claim its nesting spot atop of the old beaver house at the pond and both Red-wings and Grackles have invaded the feeders.
