Hi all,

We had our annual "Hawk Ridgers" birding trip to the Sax Zim Bog today.  We
were surprised that on such a beautiful Saturday, we only ran into a handful
of other birders.

 

Here's a partial list for our day of casual birding:

 

--Golden Eagle (1 ADULT seen soaring over Blue Spruce Road.got great looks)

--Northern Hawk Owls (5)

--Gray Jays (many; one on McDavitt Rd seen collecting nesting material and
caching it)

--Common Redpolls

--Pine Siskins

--American Goldfinches

--Boreal Chickadees (3.2 at Admiral Rd station and 1 at the feeding station
on Arkola Rd)

--Pine Grosbeaks

--Northern Shrike (1)

 

Notably absent were White-winged Crossbill, Black-backed Woodpecker
(although we didn't really TRY for BBWO) and Great Gray Owl. 

 

We tried for Black-billed Magpies at the sheep carcass on N. Dart Rd, but
found zero.

 

Good birding!

Debbie
