Birds #1 (2016)

This winter so far: black-capped chickadee, blue jay, red-bellied woodpecker, hairy woodpecker, downy woodpecker, golden-crowned kinglet, bald eagle, tufted titmouse, dark-eyes junco, white-throated sparrow, white-breasted nuthatch, wild turkey, house finch, American crow, American goldfinch, red-tailed hawk, common raven, Carolina wren, northern cardinal, pileated woodpecker.

No ruffed grouse, which makes me wonder if the cold temperatures and deep snows of last winter were what drove them to our property. Maybe all of our aspens provided emergency food. Or perhaps they don't return to the same locations every winter.
