Okay, has anyone else noticed increased numbers of White-crowned Sparrows under yard feeders this past winter season?? I have had a little flocklet. In the previous ten winters of living here in Arapahoe County (near CCSP), I have usually had 2-5 brief visits from WCSPs each winter. Usually 2 or 3 individuals for 1 or 2 days. This season, I have had about 5 - 20 WCSPs almost daily since Dec 9. The higher numbers arrive when the weather changes. I keep thinking they will move on, but 8-10 are still hanging around. Most of the winter they have outnumbered my Juncos and House Finches! Alas, no White-throated Sparrows this year!
