Through the Window: November 2016
The birds fall into late-autumn routines; the skies get cloudy and light in the early mornings drifts in mist and dreams. OK, and one of the museum bloggers gets either poetic or purple-proseish. Better switch up to our November bird notes, eh?
- Blue Jay
- Northern Cardinal
- Downy Woodpecker
- Black-capped chickadee
- White-throated Sparrow (juvenile and adults, various days)
- Tufted Titmouse
- White-breasted Nuthatch
- Mourning Dove
- Hairy Woodpecker
- Dark-eyed Junco
- Red-breasted Nuthatch
- American Goldfinch
- Wild Turkey
Interestingly, all these birds were seen last month, too. Plenty of squirrels again: Red and Gray Squirrels. No notes about Chipmunks or Woodchucks.
Even this list suggests we’re in our by-appointment season: instead of wandering by the Viewing window often, we sneak peeks of from the offices more, where we are busy with programs planning, repair and maintenance, and gearing up for our annual appeals (you can donate too!), For more precise records, you can also see eBird data for recent years at the Museum.
Even though we ask that you call or emai lto set up a visit (from now through April 30), we have some exceptions for open days, special events, offsite activites. Click over to our events page. If you follow us on Facebook, Twitter , tumblr, and/or Instagram too, you’ll find more comments, links, and observations. See you there and here.
