Nothing exceptional this morning, just a nice walk around several areas of the kill.  It was sleeting for some time while I was out, but with no wind, it was of no bother.  I didn’t even get wet.  The Birch Trail off the Main Boat Launch continues to be the most entertaining.  Winter Wren abound, Fox Sparrows are present in modest numbers and Rusty Blackbirds continue to pass through, some of which may overwinter. A Hermit Thrush was particularly cooperative this morning.  The Deli Fields were quite active too.  Song Sparrows, Fox Sparrows, American Goldfinch, Eastern Bluebirds and an assortment of woodpeckers were all upstaged by over 100 Cedar Waxwings feeding in the Crab Apple Grove at the back of the fields.  My only raptors today were Bald Eagles and Red-tailed Hawk.  A nice peaceful walk!
