Cold Hike at Breakneck Hill Conservation Land

Central Mass Birders posted on Facebook that there was a Wilson's Snipe sighting at Breakneck Hill Conservation Land.   I was really busy most of the day today, preparing for dinner tonight with friends, but just prior to sunset I hurried on over to see if I could find it.  No luck.  Pretty hike though, in spite of the temperature in the low teens.

I saw:  4 Cedar Waxwings, 1 Tufted Titmouse, 2 Song Sparrows, 20+ Mourning Doves, 1 Red-Tailed Hawk, 2 House Sparrows, 4 Dark-Eyed Juncos and heard House Finches, Black-Capped Chickadees and Eastern Bluebirds.

The sky was pretty!

Happy New Year to all!  Hope your 2014 is full of birds and butterflies and other beautiful sightings of nature!
