Despite waking up to several inches of new snow, I had a great start to the new year. I saw quite a lot of birds at my feeder, and then after the roads were cleared I went out to several good local sites.

I ended up with 52 for the day (my goal was 40), including two state lifers, Horned Lark and American Pipit, that were probably blown in from farther north with the snow.

01. Dark-eyed Junco
02. Northern Cardinal
03. Tufted Titmouse
04. Blue Jay
05. Downy Woodpecker
06. White-throated Sparrow
07. American Goldfinch
08. Black-capped Chickadee
09. Red-bellied Woodpecker
10. Song Sparrow
11. House Sparrow
12. Red-winged Blackbird
13. Red-breasted Nuthatch
14. Mourning Dove
15. White-breasted Nuthatch
16. Rock Pigeon
17. European Starling
18. Northern Mockingbird
19. Mallard
20. Bufflehead
21. Ruddy Duck
22. American Black Duck
23. Canada Goose
24. Pied-billed Grebe
25. American Robin
26. Cedar Waxwing
27. Hooded Merganser
28. Common Goldeneye
29. American Crow
30. Common Loon
31. Ring-necked Duck
32. Tundra Swan
33. Bald Eagle
34. Pileated Woodpecker
35. Eastern Bluebird
36. Sharp-shinned Hawk
37. Red-tailed Hawk
38. Horned Lark
39. American Pipit
40. Killdeer
41. Brown-headed Cowbird
42. Rusty Blackbird
43. Great Blue Heron
44. Myrtle Warbler
45. Carolina Chickadee
46. Carolina Wren
47. Lesser Scaup

47 yesterday and 18 today = 65.
Last year it was 38 + 27 = 65.
Hoping for 100 by Sunday evening. Potentially on target to achieve that, as long as the weather behaves and the birds don't hide.
