Just a quick update to birding in the county. Everything seems to remain about the same around the county this week. Highlights of the week are all ongoing birds. Common Goldeneye at the Rondout Reservoir continue in fair number. At the Bashakill (and throughout the valley) the same holds true. Gray Catbird, Winter Wren, Rusty Blackbirds, Pine Siskins and Purple Finches are the best birds. Red-shouldered Hawks are being seen in decent numbers around the county, and a particularly cooperative pair can be found at the Bashakill. Hopefully things will begin to move and bring us some new arrivals for the year.
