Second Avenue

In winter between October and mid-April, buntings cluster close to bird feeders in the center of town along Second Ave. A mix of McKay’s and snow buntings will perch on utility wires in congregations of up to 100 birds, close enough for viewers to see the subtle differences in these small snowbirds. Chickadees, redpolls, and sometimes a dark- eyed junco also come to the center of town, most often when fall is eclipsing into winter and again in late winter when days are growing longer and spring is in the air.
