Brian and Sarah Robin report, “We’ve had an adult Red-headed woodpecker visiting our feeders (near Desboro) since at least May 19th, and it’s quickly established itself as the backyard bird-feeder boss. It looks like some juvenile brown feathers remain on its face and some wishful thinking has us believing it’s the juvenile that visited us last October.”

Tania Gilchrist reports: Saw a male and female red-winged blackbird at our feeders this morning at the front of the house (when he moved his wings the red showed up). They stayed for about 10 minutes.
Dian Wood reports: I am surprised that a Northern Shrike would appear in the heavily forested area where I live. This immature Northern Shrike appears very healthy and although I observed the grey and rosy-pink feathers of a male Redpoll littered on my driveway, I am NOT ASSUMING it was the Northern Shrike who was responsible! To quote my good friend Bob, “Don’t assume that it is the Northern Shrike rather than a Merlin that is eating your small birds. Merlin certainly seems like a strong possibility in that case. Wait until you can actually see the bird and determine its identity.” As I have learned, it is always good to get photographs especially in our dull days of winter! Lesson learned: get PHOTOGRAPHS to positively ID unusual birds!
Robyn Lesauvage reports, “We discovered an adult Cooper’s Hawk sitting on our fence, yesterday. Very exciting for us.”
