Oh my! I see a little sparrow in Bird Alley! Who could it be? I think its too late for a Chipping Sparrow. I can tell that its not a Song Sparrow. Could it be my first Tree Sparrow visitation for the season??
Yes!!! It is a Tree Sparrow in Bird Alley! Oh Happy Day! They're back for another season. Can you see its bi-coloured bill that is yellow on the bottom? And yes, there is a central dark spot on its breast. Both features strong identifying marks characteristic of a Tree Sparrow.
Oops! Excuse me, Be right back.My husband just called to me that we now have Evening Grosbeaks eating at the sunflower seed I have recently put out. I didn't see the Grosbeaks but saw instead Cedar Waxwings in our crabapple tree and a Gray Squirrel in Bird Alley also, I haven't see one of those for a while. I also spied a female full bellied Hairy Woodpecker going up a tree. We have lots of Blue Jays coming and going today and also a few Mourning doves. We have lots of camera critters out and about today, much to the delight of our window watching cat.
