This morning we had a Northern Flicker (see Nov. 19) at our feeder on Gilmour St. It must be its sixth or seventh year of wintering here (assuming it is the same one, a male). We also have a White-throated Sparrow coming to the feeder along with the 10 or so juncos. Outside of town, yesterday I had an American Kestrel on Moncrief Line south of the Airport and a Northern Shrike on Moore Line just west of Hwy. 28.
