Have never had so many Swap Sparrows in the yard before. Must have at least 20 - 25.
Also W-T, W-C, Chipping and Song Sparrows, Great-crested Flycatcher, Pine Siskins, W-B Nuthatch, House Wren, Brown Thrasher, Catbird, and Norther Oriole (which showed up 15 minutes after hanging out the feeder), Ruby-Throated Hummingbird, & a Sharp-shinned Hawk.
And one warbler, a Northern Waterthrush, which my neighbor described as 'that sparrow with the hitch in his giddy-up!'.
