Winter of the Finch
The lousy weather continues in Nova Scotia with more snow and wind. All the birds know it's spring though since they are all singing.
This has been the winter of the finch, with daily tallies at our place in Portuguese Cove as follows:
Pine Siskin(10-20), my Spirit Bird!
Other attendees at our feeders or seen nearby from our house are:
Starlings(50-100 but erratic)
Mourning Dove(10-50), depending on the weather)
Spruce Grouse(1-2 but erratic)
Ruffed Grouse(1-2 but erratic)
Fox Sparrow(1), yes its singing
Barred Owl(1 heard)
Bald Eagle(1+ but erratic)
Crow(5-20 but erratic)
Common Raven(5-10 but erratic
American Robin(2-50 but erratic)
Bohemian Waxwing(50+ but erratic)
Plus lots of sea ducks and aerial birds.
I think we're spending more money feeding our birds this winter than ourselves and our three cats.
