Thursday, January 25, 1866. Saw ten snow buntings but as I did not have my gun I could not shoot any. Friday, January 26, 1866 Saw a brown creeper ascending the trunk of an elm tree: I have not seen any before for nearly a month.
Monday, January 29, 1866 Saw an immense flock of snowbuntings flying: they feed at this season (as do also snow birds tree sparrows and gold finches) on the seeds of certain tall rank weeds Wednesday, January 31, 1866. I heard plainly a flock of cherry birds, which are the first. I do not think that the blue jays are around now foe I have been to all their haunts without seeing any. Thursday, February 1, 1866 A mottled owl was seen to day; seen again on the 4th; shot on the 5th
