On Saturday January 18th we headed out for a walk around the property in hopes of finding some of the birds that call Aton Forest home for the winter.  Joining John and myself were Mike Aurelia (AF President) and birder Ayerslea Denny.  Here's what we saw (and heard):

  1. Great horned owl
  2. Downy woodpecker
  3. Blue jay
  4. American crow
  5. Black-capped chickadee
  6. Tufted Titmouse
  7. Red-breasted nuthatch
  8. White-breasted nuthatch
  9. Eastern bluebird
  10. American robin
  11. Dark-eyed junco
  12. Purple finch
  13. American goldfinch
