Don't miss your chance to be a citizen scientist!

Winter Finch Forecast 2018-2019

Finch forecast says this is an irruption year, when poor natural food crops drive some species of birds further south in search of food. Sightings of red-breasted nuthatches and purple finch have already been reported in our area. For more information, follow this link:
http://www.jeaniron.ca/2018/wff18.htm

GENERAL FORECAST: This is an irruption (flight) year for winter finches in the East. Cone and birch seed crops are poor to low in most of Ontario and the Northeast, with a few exceptions such as Newfoundland which has an excellent spruce crop. It will be a quiet winter in the North Woods. Expect fli...

#TBT Today we're remembering when Red-tailed Hawk "H3" stopped in to say hello during a post-fledging visit to the Cornell Hawk cam this past June! The young hawks are now hunting for themselves and have begun dispersing from their natal grounds in search of their own territories.

Adult male birds' roles in raising their young differ greatly from one species to another. While male hummingbirds do nothing to help raise their young, Downy Woodpecker fathers are quite involved parents. At night, male Downies incubate the eggs and stay with the young. Downy dads also stay with their fledglings while the young learn to find their own food sources.
Suet is a favorite food for Downy Woodpeckers. Watch for the dads feeding their young at your feeders this spring and summer.

Migration activity is really picking up, and the experts say get out early to enjoy this wondrous time of year.

If you live in the middle or east of the U.S., tomorrow might be a good morning to go bird watching. According to BirdCast's forecasts, the next few nights should feature the heaviest migration so far this year. More details at http://birdcast.info

The Northern Flicker is one of our favorite birds! A huge thank you to the folks at the Blue Ridge Wildlife Center for all that they do to help our injured feathered friends and other wildlife.

If you like to watch woodpeckers, you probably keep your eyes on the trees, watching for them as they forage. However, if you want to see one of the most beautiful woodpeckers in our area, don’t forget to look at the ground too!

Northern Flickers, though capable of foraging in trees like other woodpeckers, prefer to forage on the ground for their meals of ants, beetles, and other insects. When they fly up, be sure to look for the beautiful flash of color provided by their yellow feather shafts which are visible from the underside.

This female Northern Flicker was found on the ground being attacked by crows, which is often a sign that something else is wrong. In this case, we found old bruising along the chest and minor neurological deficits in one leg. This bird is thin and weak, but luckily a good eater! We hope that she will recover quickly and get back out in time to breed for the season.

Cornell Lab Bird Cams

What month is it again?
While it might seem like spring here in Ashburn this week, the Cornell Feeder Cam at Sapsucker Woods in upstate New York is a snowy wonderland. Grab a blanket and a mug of cocoa and enjoy the birds in Cornell's back yard.
http://cams.allaboutbirds.org/channel/40/Cornell_Lab_FeederWatch_Cam/

The weatherman is calling for snow today on the Cornell Lab FeederWatch cam—and lots of it! The stocked feeders are sure to be a hot commodity for our feathered guests looking for a bite to eat when heavy snow makes it harder to find natural food sources.

Why Birds Hit Windows—and How You Can Help Prevent It

When a bird strikes your window, you can feel powerless to help. The good news is that there are ways to help prevent window strikes at your home.
Visit http://www.allaboutbirds.org/why-birds-hit-windows-and-how-you-can-help-prevent-it/ for advice, including how to help a strike victim.
To help an injured bird, call The Blue Ridge Wildlife Center at 540-837-9000.

For birds, glass windows are worse than invisible. By reflecting foliage or sky, they look like inviting places to fly into. And because the sheer number of windows is so great, their toll on birds is huge. Up to about 1 billion birds die from window strikes in the U.S. each year, according to a 201
