Changing bird numbers

A brief local foray today after a night of mixed rain and snow that left the snow as deep as ever but decidedly slushy.

Notably reduced numbers of Dark-eyed Juncoes and American Tree Sparrows plus a small flush of first returning Red-winged Blackbirds are welcome harbingers of the spring to come.

A couple of Red-tailed Hawks circling in the sky, a large flock of Cedar Waxwings and quite a few House Finches.  The birds were much better than the weather.
