    100 birds in one tree

    Saw these birds today treed up during a wind storm. If you look close you can see the hawk circling and waiting for his chance at dinner.

    My wife feeds the birds and we have tons. We also have sharp-shinned hawks that come and pick the birds off the feeder. The sharp-shinned is an amazing flyer and gets one or two birds a day. He prefers doves and robins when they are here. Here's a pic of the sharp-shinned after he (she?) hit my bedroom window. Flew off after a bit. Gary

    I heard a Flicker making this seasonal sound two days ago, which they start doing before winter ends and heads into spring. Always a sound of change to my ears

    Same here at r house. I was in basement and bam the window breaks. I run out and it was a sharp-shinned female or a cooper male i wasn't quite sure. I picked up held it 4 a while and it flew off.
    I'm always looking at the feeder 2 c if there are any starlings(hate those birds). Times when no birds are around i can usually find a hawk in the trees.

    I only count 93 !
    I can see the hawk, you'd think it would just swoop in and pick them off the branches at will.

    It probably would have but the wind was a bit sporty! Probably gusting 40mph.
