Lunchtime Sightings

Yesterday we drove out to have lunch with friends who live in Hempstead. It was a cold, gray day but our friends' feeders were very busy throughout our time at their house. The most common birds there were American Goldfinches, Northern Cardinals and Chipping Sparrows.

However, a nearby tree had my first Yellow-bellied Sapsucker of 2010 while the feeder activity attracted some other new 2010 birds: a House Wren, House Sparrows, Tufted Titmice, Lincoln's Sparrows and even a couple of Blue-gray Gnatcatchers.

Sometimes I really wish that we lived in the country rather than in the exburbs!
