A type of bird?
and at least one Hoary Redpoll in the field north of the SaveALot in
Coxsackie, NY
(Greene County.). This area is part of the Coxsackie screw-in grasslands

or a small mammal
"after hearing my descriptions of the animal and the habitat, gave me 3
species to google- 2 voles, and a screw."t

Perhaps it's a typo for "screw-stem"

There's screw fern, but that's Australian

and "screw bean"
