Klehm Arboretum on Saturday afternoon

I visited Klehm for 90 minutes from 12:30-2:00 pm on Saturday, 1/13.  Highlights were 22 Common Redpolls in a flock with 10 siskins, 2 Hermit Thrushes, 16 Cedar Waxwings, and 8 Red-breasted Nuthatches.  There was only 1 Robin.

I heard the redpolls before I saw them.  After I heard them, I played a recording of their calls and they immediately flew in with the siskins and began feeding in birch catkins.  They were in the area of trail marker #10 on the west loop paved trail.

Klehm is closed on Sudays during the winter.
