the Titmousim

Ed Gaillard reports from Manhattan:

Black-capped Chickadee [many]

This morning around 9:30am, had my first of season Common Redpolls in a large sweetgum just south of the Humming Tombstone (same location  people reported on ebird yesterday).  One male, very high and hard to spot among the half-dozen or so mostly male House Finches;  one female, much lower in the eastern limbs of the tree and easier to see. Many Goldfinches and Black-Capped Chickdees in that tree as well. Several White-Breasted Nuthatches around the Evodia feeders, along with more Goldfinches and Downy and Red-Bellied Woodpeckers;  and of course The Titmousim and White-Throated Sparrows continue to abound everywhere.

Good birding,

Ed Gaillard
