Fwd: eBird Report - Prospect Park--Feeders, Jan 30, 2018

IN an otherwise subpar winter year for Prospect feeders, even the sight of 26 RED WINGED BLACKBIRDS and 7 NORTHERN CARDINAL  rouses attention.

With no rarities so far , in what is an off year , enjoyment of the feeder birds comes in the realm of little moments, like seeing a large flock of blackbirds that even Ebird questioned me for the number reported. ( Believe me , Ebird, I KNOW BLACKBIRDS)

Having all those cardinals, a RED BELLIED WOODPECKER,  and a WHITE BREASTED NUTHATCH adds "suspense".

I'm waiting for the Groundhog to tell me 6 more weeks of winter is forthcoming...I got plenty of seed left.
