There were at least 1 male and 4 female purple finches at the feeders at
Rockwoods mid-day 15 January. Besides the garden feeders to the left  of the
headquarters, there is a blind to the right of the building hiding many  feeders
with huge capacity entertaining many happy customers.

On a quick visit to Castlewood (closed beyond the railroad underpass due to
ice) spotted cardinals, white-throated sparrows, crows and heard one
red-shouldered hawk. No postings from Mike Brady lately and the feeders near
headquarters were snow-covered, so suspect he is out of town or out of  country.

Checked Shaw Nature Reserve for pine siskins, but the thistle feeders were
full of seed but empty of birds, even goldfinch.  The usual suspects were
present.  On an abbreviated walk along Brush Creek Trail and the wildflower
garden blue jays and white-throated sparrows abounded, a few red-headed
woodpeckers were around, but the woods were pretty quiet.

I should have been at the Confluence.  Maybe Sunday.
