Winter Birds

Horned Lark
Tired of the usual birds who visit your feeders? Find an agricultural area and you'll be rewarded with some birds we only see in the winter. We visited the Hadley "honey pot" area near the CT river in Massachusetts.

Horned Larks

Horned larks don't hop from spot to spot like other birds, they walk, although it really looks like a determined march.

Snow buntings also march!

Big, open spaces are the perfect areas for raptors and we saw red-tailed hawks, a kestrel and 2 bald eagles.
