Yesterday morning I visited the continuing grosbeak flock behind Queensbury Middle School. There were at least 25 birds present. The crabapples have been worked over pretty well, and I wouldn’t be surprised if that flock either shifted to some of the other trees nearby or moved on. With the sun actually out, and the birds slightly drunk on fermented apple, I was able to get photos I’m pretty happy with. Check them out here:
This morning I drove up to partridge run WMA to see if any grosbeaks or other finches were in the crabapples at the Bradt Hollow/High Point intersection. I had no success. On the way home, along Route 85 just after the (western) intersection with Cass Hill road, a raven was sitting on a tree branch holding court.
