Last winter was incredible with a terrific northern finch invasion.  I am hoping for something similar this year.  There are already lots of sightings of Pine Siskins and White-winged Crossbills plus the ListServ has a few reports of Snowy Owls north of us.  I hear the Snow Buntings are here too.  I hope to get to Spruce Run to see them this coming week when I AM ON VACATION.  Oh, sorry was I shouting?

Have there been sightings of northern birds by you?

  4. Hi Bev-
    Love the photo. Down here in Texas we have been seeing Juncos and Northern Flickers. I am keeping an eye out for the first American Goldfinches!

  5. Wonderful Pine Grosbeak amongst the berries. I saw my first last year courtesy of the winter finch irruption.
    I’m hearing reports of siskins around, yet have to see them and am still waiting on the arrival of the Evening Grosbeaks.
    A Snowy Owl was plucked out of the Hudson River near Albany NY recently.
