Birding at Chestnut Hill Farm

I haven't visited Chestnut Hill Farm since February!  So, it was time for another stop there.  Just a quick hike to the woods and back during my lunch break.  I like the look of this path that takes you through the fields.  

Saw this hawk off in the distance....

As soon as I entered the woods, I scared off a good-sized flock of Dark-Eyed Juncos.

Next, I saw a Goldfinch enjoying a fruity lunch.

Messy eater!

From a birding perspective, the woods were pretty quiet.  I was hoping for something more exciting!  2012 is coming to a close, and I am still trying to add to my bird list!

It was windy, and some of the trees were really creaking, but the birds were quiet.
