Yesterday I did my final Project Feeder Watch for the season and was so happy to see two FOX SPARROWS come to the base of my feeders (one continues today). I also continue to see the HERMIT THRUSH which has been coming to my feeders daily since Feb 11. A couple days ago I had an AMERICAN TREE SPARROW at the feeders (first one I've noticed in my yard since 2007!).
