Keep calm and go get the LEGO

Same story, west and north winds are keeping things quiet north of the Mason-Dixon Line. Birds will continue filtering into the region in low numbers. In the meantime, a contingent from State College is off on a chase to the Lesser Goldfinch in Greencastle, PA. This is Pennsylvania’s 1st record of this southwestern finch and one of very few in the northeast. Wish us luck!

The wind forecast looks like we will be stuck with north and west winds until Friday night.
