I have them in my book for December 2006; and, they stayed for a while.
I think there were 8-10; I was so excited!

Hello Tweeters -

Looking at my old Peterson guide I notice I have marked sighting of EG's in
my garden in March (3/3/87) and Jan (1/27/93). Curious if anyone else has
ever seen them in winter and where? But now that its approaching fall,
wondering about their movement patterns. I see they are common but
irregular. As I mentioned to a few others, our first sighting of them was on
a window feeder (a small one at that) with at least 3-5 of them chowing
down! What a sight that was to walk into the room and see a mini-flock of
them on the window! I know they also enjoy the samaras on the vine maples -
so I hope they come and have a feast.

It's great being able to Tweet when having a cold - can still feel like I'm
birding - vicariously at least!

Caryn / Wedgwood (still just hearing them)
