Un-finchy winter
I'm curious about any contrary points of view, but my perception is that Winter 18-19 is remarkably un-remarkable in terms of winter finches so far (with the very notable exception of the rosy-finches near Page!). Other than a few small to medium-small flocks of Pine Siskins that I've noticed here and there, numbers of other winter finches seem very very low (i.e., Cassin's Finches, Evening Grosbeaks, Red Crossbills) in Flagstaff and the surrounding forest. I suppose there must be good food resource elsewhere in the west!

In other news, there was a spectacular light-morph Ferruginous Hawk perched obligingly at the corner of Country Club and Old Walnut Canyon Rd. this morning. At first glimpse, I mistook the bird for a Snowy Owl (wouldn't that be nice!).
