February 24, 2007

Six intrepid souls joined Dr. Bill Barnard over at Victory Basin WMA to search for Gray Jays and other boreal birds. Gray Jays were no where to be seen, but Victory Bog was alive with the sight and sounds of White-winged Crossbills and other winter finches. After lunch our group headed to Moose Bog (Wenlock-Buxton WMA) near Island Pond to search for the Three-toed Woodpecker. No luck finding the woodpecker but we did finally see some Gray Jays. Here's our bird list for the day:

Ruffed Grouse
Wild Turkey - flock flying over Nulhegan River
Mourning Dove
Downy Woodpecker
Hairy Woodpecker
Black-backed Woodpecker - one male at Victory Bog
Gray Jay - 3 at Moose Bog
Blue Jay
Common Raven
Black-capped Chickadee
Red-breasted Nuthatch
Golden-crowned Kinglet - one at Victory
Dark-eyed Junco - several at Victory
Purple Finch
Red Crossbill - 2 males, 1 female at Victory
White-winged Crossbill - many pairs
Pine Siskin
American Goldfinch
Evening Grosbeak - flock of 12 at Victory
