Hudson Field Trip, March 1, 2014,  clouds, -15 with a cold east wind

Five birders braved the cold weather and were rewarded with sightings of 100+ Cedar waxwings and 10+ American robins feeding on Buckthorn berries.The colours on both species were rich, bright yellow on the waxwings and  rusty red on the robins, which made for satisfying observations.We ended the trip early as hands and feet were quickly freezing.Thanks to those who came out for a short but pleasant walk in the woods.

Here is our complete list of birds: Downy woodpecker 2, , Hairy woodpecker 2, Blue jay 1, American crow 6,  Black-capped chickadee 4, White-breasted nuthatch 2, American robin 12+, Cedar waxwing 100+, American goldfinch 3
