Post # 64

What is the first bird that you saw on the first day of the year? Does this bird have some sort of special significance for the rest of the year? I am always anxious to find out what is at the feeder on the first day of the year. This year it was the Downy Woodpecker for me. As I was preparing my first cup of coffee it was already busy at the peanut feeder hanging from the tree in my backyard in Saint-Lazare. 

For something a little different for this blog, feel free to name the first bird you saw today in the comments section below, along with where you saw it (geographically speaking). I am curious what people are seeing/saw on the first day of 2017!
