Apparently 3 HAWFINCHES were seen this afternoon in Penn Wood, calling quite regularly from tall trees surrounding the house in the woods towards the south end. Typically, they were difficult to see in the foliage.
Hawfinches are an enigma in this Recording Area and disappear as quickly as they appear. For several years a pair nested in Mike & Lynn's orchard at Little Chalfont Golf Course but now that they have moved to Austria, I can no longer gain access. I suspect that they are still there.
