Sammy did not believe me when I told him we had our first ever Dickcissel at our feeders this afternoon. When he got home he also so it. It is hanging out with a bunch of House Sparrows. I usually don't look closely at House Sparrows, so maybe it has been around for a while.
Between 4 pm and 5 pm today, we also had the Brown Thrasher return, one White-Crown, one Chipping Sparrow, 20+ White-Throated Sparrows, & our first Goldfinch since July. I just put my regular finch feeders back up after getting new gutters installed two weeks ago. We also had several other regular yard birds this afternoon.
