January 2018 News

It has really been an odd winter with temperatures swinging between extreme cold to almost melting.  You will often hear the Chickadee’s “Springs Coming” call even though we know spring is some time away.  It is still a good time to visit the Sanctuary with common sightings being of course Black-capped Chickadees, but also Common Redpolls, Ravens, Cedar Waxwings and occasionally small flocks of Pine Grosbeaks.  You may also notice that tree buds have started swelling and Pussy Willows have begun to appear.
