Good sign for Winter Finch flight year?

This weekend, RF and I were standing in my front yard, talking to some neighbors, when we heard “ankh, ankh” … We looked at each other, and said “nuthatch” (which my neighbors must have thought we were nuts! (less the hatch.)

But Rob continued to look – and he ID’d the RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH which flew directly over our heads and landed in the tree near us.

That day, 2 more were reported at Spruce Run!

With the Nuthatches known as “honorary” winter finches.. is this a sign of things to come? Could this be a great winter finch year? Stay tuned!!!
