Subject: [obol] singing White-throated Sparrow in SR Portland
*

A White-throated Sparrow is singing in the overgrown back yard on Haig, east of Milwaukie Avenue. I don't believe I've ever heard the species sing in my native state. My parents were birdwatchers in New England before I was born. They always led me to believe White-throated Sparrows were out of range in Oregon. My mother told me they were known as "Peabody birds". She would have turned 81 today if she were alive.
