I was happy to see a little American Tree Sparrow in Bird Alley this morning. The bi-colourd billwas its identifying characteristic that identified it to me. This is only the second Tree Sparrow I have seen this fall in our feeder area. Also this morning I saw a female Northern Cardinal in Bird Alley, as well as Black-capped Chickadees, Blue Jays and a Mourning dove. Bird Activity has been very slow lately.During the afternoon the Tree Sparrow returned and also the
female Northern Cardinal made a reappearance also and
shortly after sighting the female,
I saw the bright red male Cardinal in the tree branches also. We had lots!! of Pine Siskin and they were accompained by American Goldfinch. The Goldfinch were not as plentiful as the Pine Siskins. Aslo Blue Jays and Chicksddes sbounded.
