Pine Siskin 12/20/2011

December has been a slow month for birdwatching. We are still seeing Red-winged Blackbirds. We see the same 3 every day in the tall grass by the lake. I don’t know if that is normal for here since we never saw them in Randall in Winter. We have had a warm December so far. We have been hoping to see Redpolls, but looking at our records from Randall, we rarely saw them in December and certainly not on warm days. We saw a Brown Creeper today. I did not get a photo. I saw it shortly after I woke up and it was gone once I was dressed and able to get outside.

Shawnne saw a Bald Eagle yesterday. There must be some open water some where otherwise they would be gone. She has seen several Eagles in the last month or so.

Below is a shot of a Red-bellied Woodpecker. Not a great shot but it is the only colorful bird I have photographed in weeks.
