We were surprised to see a Red Bellied Woodpecker at the nyjer feeder. I think the goldfinches were surprised too.

these shots are so funny. I have both birds in AR - but did not know that the goldfinch was also a winter bird - I finally got a feeder up for them just a couple weeks ago and they have came to my garden by the plenty :) Awesome color. Can't believe that the woodpecker was on the feeder. But I had one come to my windowsill this winter where I spread seed.

Sandhill Cranes



Sandhill Cranes


Sandhill Cranes


We got to see the 3 Sandhill Cranes that had been reported in Franklin Township in Somerset County on the "New Jersey Birding" mailing list. See the link on the right to the archive. Thanks to Theodore Chase and others for providing the report and the specific location. We had to make two loops around Randolph before seeing them.

Dark-eyed Junco "Oregon" Race


Mike took a short trip to Corvallis, Oregon and had a few hours for birding. This junco (Oregon race) is more colorful than the ones we frequently encounter in our yard.

We saw scrub jays frequently when we lived in California, but never noticed the white eyebrow before.
