A bit quiet at the feeder

Nothing really that unusual to report at our feeders lately. We did have a hawk cause a bit of a raucous that caused a mourning dove to fatally crash to the ground.

Lots of sparrows, chickadees, white-breasted nuthatches, and the reliable hairy woodpecker continue to show up. We haven’t seen the northern cardinals that had been so regular show up for the past few days. They may have moved on, and hopefully someone else is enjoying the male as much as we did. He was quite the showoff.

I plan on heading over to Putney Mountain on Tuesday to take part in the hawk watch. I have not participated in one of these before and the weather may not be too conducive on that day, at least according to the forecast, but it will be a nice chance to get outdoors for the day.
