Last week a wave of robins washed over the Hollow.
I was able to snap quite a few of them munching on juniper berries.
I guess we were just a stop on their journey...
The next day they were gone.
That's the second wave of robins we've had in so many months!

Yesterday Tom reported seeing a raptor flying through the Hollow, bigger than a hawk but smaller than a Bald Eagle.
Perhaps a Golden Eagle?
I can only hope... and have my zoom ready.

That we all love to see flying"
