This large 75-80 pound coyote was seen here in town by a friend of my sons.  What a beauty.  My Canine Wildlife Biologist nephew said it must be a hybrid.  This morning most of my siskins seem to have moved on and been replaced by about 2 dozen Goldfinches.  I went through nearly 50# of thistle in a very short time.  I had a great day at the Hawk Watch on Friday.  154 birds total.  120 were Red-Tail Hawks.  It was cold and a pretty good wind W-NW.  One more week and the year will be done. 

Hurricane Sandy was pretty devastating to the Jersey Shore and Long Island.  About 80% of us lost power.  Ours was restored in less then 24 hours.  It's almost a week and we have lots of friends who still don't have power.   4 poles came down on our road, and it remains closed. We opened our home to any of our friends who needed food, laundry, internet, TV, showers etc. I loved having everyone over.
