While sitting on my patio enjoying this wonderful fall evening, a EURASIAN TREE SPARROW briefly appeared at the feeders in my Ames yard. I presume this is the same bird I had several weeks ago. If anything, it has shown it's not super reliable and I'll update if anything changes on that front.
Some other fun yard observations this evening: 70+ Chimney Swifts (flying northwest), 5 f/imm. Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, 1 Carolina Wren, and Tennessee, Bay-breasted, Nashville Warblers and American Redstarts.
