Very Cold

Took a short drive around the snow and ice covered Tarrytown Lakes and Rockerfeller State Park to see who's around. The lakes are frozen except for a small hole in the large reservoir, occupied only by three Ring-billed Gulls. Along Old Sleepy Hollow a sizable Pine Siskin flock enjoyed eating rock salt in the road. Siskin flock size can be very difficult to size estimate, but my best guess is 40. Also at this spot were one each Eastern Bluebird and Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. The shock of the day were two Northern Ravens croaking above my house in downtown Tarrytown, headed south. A yard first. Yellow-bellied Sapsucker
