March 7 - Common Redpoll

At last I have a Common Redpoll visiting my home feeders this morning !  For the past few weeks I have been enjoying up to 24 Pine Siskins eating up pounds of nyger seed while I continually looked for one of them to be Red.  The last time I had Redpolls at my home was back in February 2013.

March 1 - Jones Beach

Our group of 4 took a trip out to Jones Beach this morning in hopes of seeing Common Redpolls, and maybe the over-wintering Northern Goshawk.  We saw neither of these birds, but did see a Northern Saw-Whet Owl.
