White-throated Sparrows

Early morning visitors today were two White-throated Sparrows This was the first appear -ance of this sparrow species in our feeder area this spring. Two easily identifiable markings to look for on a White-throated Sparrow are its 'yellow lores' and the 'white bib' at its throat. This year's first sighting was a bit later than last year's which was on Apr. 24.

editing note: since this morning's count we now have 5 White-throated Sparrows at our feeders.
