Re:Anchorage 17th & 18th
- Thank you for posting your local bird sightings at Huffman and Birch. I
live on the north side of Upper Little Campbell Creek below Woodburn Ave
and a little to the North of Upper Huffman. I have not seen a single red
poll or red breasted nuthatch. I was wondering where they were. Pine
Grosbeaks have always been rare here, haven't seen one this year.
A few bc and boreal chickadees are coming around. Hairys and Downys and
Gray Jays show up most days. I especially enjoy the woodpeckers, because
they let me know when they are here. I'll be busy doing something, and
I'll hear the chirp! Their acrobatics are fun to watch on the hanging
suet feeders. I rendered some fat (can't remember what it was) and they
won't touch it, they want the nasty ground fat from a grocery store meat
department. I always worry that it will kill them.
I enjoy all the birding reports, but especially want to know what people
are seeing on their feeders.
42 degrees, shining and dripping out there!
