Hello VT "Beeks":
I was happy to see more than the usual suspects in our yard this
morning: 2 WT Sparrows...one white, one tan crown scratching for seed
near one of our feeders and romping in the tangled growth beneath a
hedgerow. Nice! May these southerly and easterly winds are sending them
back to VT... Also, I scattered some seed on the ground, so perhaps
this was an invitation to them.
The usuals in our yard: Our cadre of BC Chickadees, 2 Downy Woodies, a
few Mourning Doves, Blue Jays and I could hear WB Nuthatches in our
woods, but no sighting. Had a Purple Finch earlier in the week, but
one and done for him...
Also, has anyone been hearing some chirps in the night? The past 2
nights I have around 2:00 to 3 am (I am often insomniac). Couldn't ID
by voice...anyone else hear this or some thoughts about what it might
on Joslin Hill, in Waitsfield
