Irruptive winter?


Irruptive species of birds are ones that don’t migrate to a particular region every winter. Rather, they do so some winters, but not others. This year is shaping up to be a good year for seeing irruptive species around the Lake. Here are three seen a few days ago.

Redpolls have already been mentioned this year, but there are many around.

Bohemian Waxwings are back in good numbers.

So far, I haven’t seen many Pine Grosbeaks, but a few females were enjoying rowan berries.

    Interesting, you are seeing more of ones that normally don’t show up. In Chase we are seeing very few of the ones that are normally here.
