A midday trip to Mason Farm in Chapel Hill yesterday produced a nice
variety of birds, with a few special delights, including a large flock
of cedar waxwings in a tree back in the swampy area. The area near Post
24 was especially active, with everything from red-tailed hawk to
goldfinches. An unexpected find was a female rusty blackbird.
I saw a number of hermit thrushes and ruby-crowned kinglets along the

Along with many "regulars," gray catbird, brown thrasher, towhee, and
phoebe punctuated the lovely warm November day.
