Winter is Coming

It's been a very long fall, and a late winter. Winter birds have been showing up now. We have seen the Great-horned Owl, Evening Grosbeak, Common Redpoll, and even some Pine Grosbeaks. There have also been some Pine Siskins, which aren't strictly winter birds here. The past few years haven't been very good for finches, I haven't seen a Pine Grosbeak in a long time!
Another special bird we saw a few days ago was a Long-eared Owl! We had them nesting here in the summer, but this was most likely a different one, just a late migrant.

Here are a few photos of the redpolls.
