2014-2015 Winter Finch Forecast

We donned our heavy jackets this morning while birding Plum Island. Our conversation was about
whether we would have a good winter finch season.

So here's the anxiously awaited Winter Finch Forecast by Ron Pittaway of the Ontario Field Naturalists.
It sounds like we will not be seeing many waxwings or grosbeaks this winter.  The prospects for redpolls
and possibly crossbills are better.


Good birding,
