Subject: RE: BS: Birdwatching 2009
I meant to post this earlier-

A generous person in Maine has been sending out new wood nesting boxes designed for flickers and kestrels. We are fortunate enough to have been given some, and will get them mounted asap. In return we promised to maintain them and send back written and photographic reports concerning any birds nesting there. Both species are under stress in the USA, so I hope we can offer some meaningful observations.

We've seen bluebirds, American goldfinches, Rose breasted grosbeak, siskins, heard warblers, wood thrushes, and many sparrows, and again watched a sharp-shinned hawk diving at chortling chickadees in a large beautybush.
