Pole Farm - Jan 8th

A brief morning foray to the nearby Pole Farm (Mercer County Park NorthWest) mainly looking for photographs of Rough-legged Hawk. In the event, no Rough-legs were to be found, and instead there was a relatively low count of two Northern Harriers (male+female), two Red-tailed Hawks, American Kestrel and both species of Vulture. Numerous Canada Geese were spilling out of overnight roosts at/near Rosedale Park in small foraging flocks. A few Northern Flickers were milling around and the most interesting bird was a sleepy Carolina Wren calling from the field edge - this was species #46 for the year.
