Išm taking advantage of the break between the afternoon symposium and the
evening program of the Arkansas Audubon Society fall meeting to share the
amazing variety of fall migrants in my suburban yard today, a collection of
species I infrequently see here that occurred together in various
combinations this morning and early afternoon.
Eastern Towhee male and female
Song Sparrow 2
Swamp Sparrow yard bird
Indigo Bunting up to 4 at a time
All of these birds except the phoebe were feeding on and taking cover in the
native plants that fill my yard, including Switchgrass and Cutleaf
Coneflower (Rudbeckia laciniata) seeds. None of them visited my feeders.
