Happy Holidays

Normal feeder crew over the weekend, except for a single recurrent
juvenile/female? Purple finch. First one I've seen this winter, typically
get a small group of 3-6 males/females in January and February. Also had a
Winter wren, and a Hermit thrush bouncing around the back wooded part of my
place yesterday.

Cheers from downtown Quinton, Virginia!
