Today there were Joshua, Paul, Rick S, Bob, Roger, Tony Nina and me.
We began by photographing the apples dripping with dew, interrupted by birds flying overhead - Canada Geese with a Cackling Goose among them, about 20 Common Redpolls, and American Robins. Tony also spotted a tree full of House Finches.
Suddenly, Joshua saw a Peregrine Falcon blast overhead and land on the
There was a large flock of European Starlings on the road, which flew into a large Buckthorn to feed on the berries. We spent quite a while trying to photograph them along with the American Robins. Nina saw a rather large Downy Woodpecker.
Tony saw a couple of Dark-eyed Juncos taking off.
There were some more Dark-eyed Juncos, a Downy Woodpecker and a couple of American Goldfinches.
It was quiet there except for a cooperative House Finch and a skulking Hairy Woodpecker.
