Lindsey - it was an amazing irruption last year of Pine Siskins. Glad you enjoyed seeing the maps.
Redpolls could very likely show up in our area this winter, though food supplies up north are fine. But they are a biennial irruptor and this is their year.
Haven't heard any snowy reports, though Rough-legged Hawks are being reported I think in Ft.Edward (?)

Those maps of the Great Pine Siskin Irruption of 2008/2009 are amazing to look at and I greatly enjoyed them at my feeders for months.

Has there been an irruption of any species this year? I haven't even seen a snowy owl this year yet (I usually see one or two).

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
