Things still slow

A Ruffed Grouse crosses Peter’s Road in Fremont.

Having spent a great deal of time covering much of the county this week, Arlene Borko and I headed to the towns of Freemont and Delaware this morning. We haven’t been to these areas in quite some time and were hoping that we might happen upon some new birds. Things remain slow, with just your basic winter residents present. A Great Blue Heron was a surprise in a small pond. This is unusual for December. With high temp topping our morning at 50 degrees, it didn’t seem much like late fall birding. The bird of the morning was a RUFFED GROUSE crossing Peter’s Road in Freemont. This was my sixth Grouse this year, a good sign for a species declining in our county. We had no sign of any winter birds. (Buntings, Larks, Longspurs, Rough-legged Hawks etc.)
