Busy day here in Weybridge for our first property count of the year, beginning with a mature Red-tail behind the greenhouse.  We have a male and a female Pileated Woodpecker enjoying wild grapes hanging from bare trees, and Robins gleaning the cherry tree in the hedge row.  Juncos showed up for only the second time this winter, and two male and two female bluebirds perched on our woodshed roof. These  are the first bluebirds we have seen since tragedy struck our breeding family this summer.  Fingers crossed now for their having a better 2012. The Mourning Doves and Robins as well as the Goldfinches are drinking from the open water around the inflow of our pond - our $7,000 bird bath.
