I actually have more purple finches than house finches
at my feeder here in Hardy County. This is the first
year that this has happened. I usually have 20-25
purple finches and 12-15 house finches. And I do have
some bad eyes in the house finches. I haven't seen
any bad eyes in the purple finches. I haven't seen
any siskins since early Dec, or grosbeaks since Oct.
I do have flickers regularly - a pair- along with a
pair of hairys every day, a pair of redbellies and 4
or 5 downys. My sapsucker left around the first of
the year after being a daily visitor all fall. On the
Belle Babb Lake in Grant Co. on Sunday , we saw two
beautiful pair of Common Mergansers, 8 ringnecks, 11
buffleheads and many Canada geese and black ducks.
Our migrating Bald Eagle numbers are down this year
and they seemed to have mostly left during the warm
weather - about a month earlier than last year. Winter
returned today- I wonder what this weather will bring
