The Winter List to date  

Although I had hopes of getting out this past weekend, my plans changed due to a busy morning schedule Saturday involving a home inspection and a freezing rain storm on Sunday. As a result, I still haven't been able to get to all the places I wanted to visit last weekend, and I'm still lacking in a number of forest and open field species such as Pileated Woodpecker, Brown Creeper, American Robin and Snow Bunting for my winter list. Maybe next weekend, time and weather permitting.

To date, my Winter List stands at 30 species, nowhere near what I hoped to achieve by this time given that the most variety of bird species are usually found in the first week to ten days of December.
