Chipping Sparrow Still Here

They arrive every April, during the latter part of the month and stay around our feeder area until late October or early November.
I have no sighting records of them here in Nov. 2005 however
- in 2003 my last sighting of them was on Nov. 4th
- in 2002 on the 3rd
- in 2001 they were gone by November
- in 2000 they left on the 3rd.
In 2006, as of yesterday, November 10th, one is still here! This is the latest in the fall season that I have seen these little Chipping Sparrows at our feeders.
