I stayed at the well head from 6:55 - 7:40 before giving up and heading to the car. As I waited I noted 2 Downy's, 1 Hairy, 1 Pileated, and about 17 Mourning Doves (I think they roost in your neighbor's evergreen?).8:45 am Someone who did not sign in on the log book said:
I got in my car, very frigid!, noted the time, and began to pull out. I took one final look back at your feeding station and the bird was there! My look was all of 3 seconds, but it was a frontal view.
So, here are my log corrections! 6:55 - 7:40 YES! instead of no. Thanks again for your openness to the birding community. And it was nice to meet you, however briefly.
The YTWA was present briefly at 8:45 am this morning (1/7) coming briefly to the suet feeder and then moving rapidly through the branches of the tree - high up. I think it was probably there earlier ( 8:15) again ever so briefly - moving too quickly to really get on it. It was very cold at that time - about 10 F. . . Brrr! It had to keep moving!Unfortunately, the rest of the day's visitors were not successful. Drew said that a car full of 4 people showed up at around 9am - 9:25 am, among them was Doug Hitchcox (staff naturalist with the Maine Audubon Society). Bill Bunn did not see the warbler on his short visit of 12:25? - 1:30. Joe and Diane Scott visited from 1:45 - 2:15 - no sighting, and lastly Misty Monroe stayed from 2:44 - 4:05 with no sighting. I left school at contract time, in order to get home in time for enough daylight to photograph the warbler. No luck...But, I had the privilege of hanging out with Misty from around 3:20 -4:05, and at least we got to chat about birds...
