Highlights: Cape May Warbler (photo above), Bohemian Waxwing, Northern Goshawk, and Hoary Redpoll
A Cape May Warbler, first found on the 17th, was relocated again today. The temperatures have dropped over the last few days, and seeing this bird foraging in the snow was very strange. The Prairie Warbler, first located on October 22, was seen as recently as the 21st. Activity around the Point has dropped of recently, there are however still some birds around. Additional sightings today included; Common Loon, Bald Eagle,Red-tailed Hawk, Northern Goshawk, Bohemian Waxwing, Snow Bunting, Common & Hoary Redpoll, Pine Grosbeak, and American Goldfinch.
In response to a comment on the previous post. We will keep the feeders going until we leave in mid-December. The Evening Grosbeaks are very sporadic, and are not being seen most days. The Pine Grosbeaks are still being seen daily in varying numbers, there are usually 4-12 coming to the feeders daily.
