Recent sightings (Spotted Towhee continues)

Evening Grosbeak
No major news to report form the past two days but the Spotted Towhee continues at the feeders, though it still being relatively shy.  Also of interest to some is the recent influx of "Boreal" birds over the past couple days with large numbers of Snow Buntings and Evening Grosbeaks accompanied by smaller numbers of Bohemian Waxwing, Northern Shrike, Pine Grosbeak, White-winged Crossbill, and Common Redpoll among others.  Also noted of late were Sharp-tailed Grouse, Northern Goshawk, Rough-legged Hawk, and Short-eared Owl along with the plethora of sparrows and other birds at the feeders which have included a Brewer's Blackbird and who knows what else might be lurking in woods just waiting to be discovered.
