Mid November

The regular pair of Cardinals is in evidence along with a lone female, tolerated by the female of the pair, but not the male.

1 December two males as well as two females this morning.

25 November – third day of temperature remaining below zero, plenty of bird activity in the garden, mostly the usual suspects but including the Yellow-bellied Sapsucker which first showed up Friday so this is its fourth day here – surely it must depart soon?

27 November After a heavy fall of wet snow overnight, the Sapsucker was here again this morning. Not observed again by us in November – we hope it is on its way south.
