Late yesterday afternoon, after looking all day for something new in the yard, Betsy found a FIELD SPARROW on the lawn. Turns out there were five or six that moved quickly through the grass, then the brush on the side of the yard, and then they were gone. A little later, a FOX SPARROW appeared under the spruce tree where we throw down seed. And a little later, there was a second. Today, a CHIPPING SPARROW and our first migrant WHITE-THROATED SPARROWS were under the spruce, while a SWAMP SPARROW hopped on the lawn. A TREE SPARROW and many juncos added to our sparrow tally.
