The sleety weather has brought a lot of birds out of the woods and fields
of Seymour to our feeders today (Monday, Feb. 16). Among the more unusual
are a Brown Thrasher and a Phoebe. The Thrasher "thrashed" his bill through
the seeds and debris on the garden wall, looking for opened kernels. The
Phoebe is just sitting on the back of a lawn chair under the porch roof,
looking all fluffed up and miserable. At Least one Pine Siskin was enjoying
nyger seed along with the Goldfinches. The "usual suspects" included
Northern Cardinals, Tufted Titmice, Carolina Chickadees, Towhees,
White-Throated Sparrows, Field Sparrows, Downy and Red-Bellied Woodpeckers,
and a couple of Purple Finches. Still waiting for a Fox Sparrow to show up.
They only seem to visit when it snows.
