On southern end of Hammond Hill, four Fox Sparrow seen at once at our feeder, but no White-throats nor Song. Several dozen junco, but fewer goldfinch than in recent past. Over 100 b'birds: mostly red-wings, several grackles, 1 cowbird, and a few starlings


Sitting at the window in this weather beats going out to watch starving birds.

I have a song sparrow as well Dave.....along with 2 white throats (of
different flavors) along with lots of blackbirds (red wings, grackles,
starlings) and a female cardinal eating suet!!

Stay warm all. Can Spring be far away?

My hopes were raised briefly by what turned out to be a Song Sparrow, which eventually fed on a suet/seed block, a behavior I hadn't seen before. I guess that bird must innovate to stay fed.

Instead it turned out to be a Rusty Blackbird, a new species for my yard, although there is a bit of woods and wetland adjacent. I think it was visiting feeders at my neighbor's.
