On Nov. 10 we had an ice storm and in the next few days there were a variety of birds coming to feed. Along with the regular Woodpeckers, House Sparrows, Nuthatches, Chickadees and Blue Jays, there were Red Winged Black Birds, Grackles and a few Harris's Sparrows. We were all in the kitchen when daughter-in -law, Shari spotted the first Brambling. She, my son Kyle and I all grabbed bird books to see if we could ID them. I started at the front of my favorite book National Geographic Society Field Guide to the Birds of North America.
They were the very last birds in the book. Bramblings. There were two for sure and they stayed around for two days.
