We had a handful of White-throated Sparrows around the yard since about 10:30 am Friday. First this fall. Also a pair of Eastern Towhees in fresh plumage. Our locals had been looking pretty ragged last we saw them.
Listening and looking, there was also a Ruby-crowned Kinglet, a few Yellow-rumps and a House Wren, but nothing like the variety seen early in the week. The two cool fronts brought a big change here.
