Scholarship, and a long-awaited visitor

Hi C-birders,

Pasted below is a notice about a scholarship available for a young birder 
to go to a Victor Emanuel birding camp. Wish they'd had that when I was 
that age!

In local news, after months of whining about it, I *finally* had a 
Red-breasted Nuthatch visit my feeders this morning! Also a Fox Sparrow 
and at least one Purple Finch amidst the more common fare. I had a pair 
of Hairy Woodpeckers a couple of days ago feeding around the yard, but 
for some reason they are ignoring the feeders. The Hairies in 
Massachusetts seemed like much bigger suet fans than their conspecifics 
around here...

Good birding,
