We ended up seeing 20 species, with a few pleasant surprises among them. The feeder stations were bustling with plenty of action, mostly Common Redpolls (still) and Black-capped Chickadees, with lesser numbers of American Goldfinch and White-breasted Nuthatch.
Notable sightings included a shreeping flock of about 40 handsome Bohemian Waxwings, a ridiculous Golden-crowned Kinglet that resembled a ping-pong ball, a low-level dogfight between an American Crow and a Red-shouldered Hawk, a close encounter with a swooping Turkey Vulture near the cross, and nearby some good views of a Brown Creeper and a striking Yellow-bellied Sapucker.
Our goal however, the Tufted Titmouse, eluded us for many long hours, with only one heard between feeders 1 and 2. As my hands started to freeze up, we stood up to leave, finally admitting defeat.
Of course, that's when the eerily quiet and calm Titmouse materialized next to feeder 1, posing for several minutes. High five! Thank you, birding gods.
