First birds of the year,

1.House Sparrow(eight seen while waiting for the bus)
2.American Crows(25 gathered in a back lane for some reason)
3.Rock Pigeon

Specifically went downtown in my city to twitch White-throated Sparrows
which I found.Had to wade through a gauntlet of panhandlers though!

4.White-throated Sparrows(four seen)

Then went to twitch another rarity a Red-bellied Woodpecker.

No luck at the Witches Hut,but did get a nice bird for Manitoba!

5.White-winged Crossbill

Also here were,

6.House Finch
7.White-breasted Nuthatch
8.Black-capped Chickadee
9.Downy Woodpecker
10.Hairy Woodpecker
11.Common Redpoll
