The hawthorne tree located by the field near my house has shed all its leaves from the high winds, cold weather and heavy rains. As I walked the road near the tree I could hear a chorus of bird cries and see lots of movement in the tree branches. I stopped to observe the activity to see if I could identify the many birds flying through or perched in the tree branches. There were flickers, robins and juncos that were easy to identify. But the LBB’s (little brown birds) were not so easy since they very seldom stayed in one spot. They had all left when I walked by the same tree on my way back home.
