Through the Window: November 2013

Busy with the Annual Appeal (you can donate! Still! Online, even!) so a little late getting this post up. Also, we weren’t in front of the usual (big) window (with our note board) as often as we usually are.  At any rate, here are our noticed-in-November birds.

Come on over and help us notice some more in January or February! Project Feederwatch and the Great Backyard Bird Count are and will be up and running. Plus a carving class. Check out our calendar of events.

  • Dark-eyed Junco
  • Black-capped Chickadee
  • American Tree Sparrow (11/3)
  • Blue Jay
  • Wild Turkey
  • American Goldfinch
  • Fox Sparrow
  • Hairy Woodpecker
  • White-throated Sparrow

Four-footed friends: Eastern Chipmunks (still!), Gray Squirrels, Red Squirrels

The “Through the Window” series is an informal record of observations made by staff, volunteers, and visitors. Anyone at the Museum may add to this list. Observations are usually through our viewing window: a large window with a film to make it more difficult for birds to see the watchers. We have chairs and binoculars to try there, a white board, and many identification guides. Outdoors, several feeders are attached on a single, bear-resistant pole. A small pond, flowers and water plants, shrubs and trees add cover and (seasonally) other food choices . You can sometimes see what we see via our webcam.
