Two triple-shooter cannons going...I think from SE? Got out of bed to try to locate..but by time outside they stopped. I think someone was setting and/or testing them.
Again fixed eagle pole.
Observed 13 robins, 12 finches, 1 starling. 7 finches were Amer. gold finches.
No vultures etc. Perhaps too little wind to fly. Bait still there.
I see 45-50 starlings on telephone line by barn just north of my house.
Rough-legged hawk circling north end of blueberry field in tight circles.
Not seeing any starlings near my area or the barn area.
JacKite bald eagle line tangled around it's wings - fixed.
Observed 10 robins, 7 finches, 3 starlings all in very NW corner of field - the robins are using corn field for retreat. Rest of field is quiet.
I fired 2 shotgun blasts...nothing happened, nothing rousted.
Noticed less presence and actvity from the 3 Rough-legged hawks. Also much less presence of swallows...where do both go?
North dairy field adjacent to the berries is being irrigated.
Observed 15 robins, 4 finch, 6 starlings. Most are entering/exiting the center mid-point in the field. Starlings and finches using my woods for staging.
REMEMBER: The villain is the Starling. It is not the grower.
