Other observations include cardinal, turfed titmouse, Carolina wren, white-breasted nuthatch, yellow-bellied sapsucker, blackbirds, red-bellied woodpecker and cedar waxwings. Note that the cedar waxwings are usually a harbinger of spring (and not winter) and it's also worth noting that many plants were in bloom in late December such as azaleas during the warm and wet weather that set a week of record-high temps (avg. 80) during the week of Christmas.
