Late winter 2011 feeder birds
This winter 2 Common Redpolls appeared at the feeders in early February. Then at the end of February they started appearing across CT. The high count at our feeders was ~40. Almost every spring we see migrating Rusty Blackbirds, a species in serious decline, mixed in with the "blackbird" (grackle, red-winged, cowbird) flocks that invade the feeders for 2-4 weeks.
