Subject: [texbirds] Purple Finches, north Austin

Perched, site-faithful Purple Finches have been hard to come by so far this
winter in Central Texas, so I was very pleased to refind the flock of 5
originally reported by Mike Rogan at Yett Creek Neighborhood Park. On
Tuesday, 8 January, I stumbled across the silent group of finches in a
thicket of junipers by the swale at the east end of the park. An American
elm tree near this location may be their preferred wild food resource.

Good birding,
