Here on the hill in Huntington, our annual fox sparrow visit began the other
day. In 2004 a fox sparrow appeared on 4/11, in 2006 it was 4/4 and this
year it was 4/5.
We also had a yellow-bellied sapsucker here yesterday (4/6).
As others have noted, the snow this week brought a flush of Junco's. One of
our flock is considerably more brown than gray. Yesterday, at another house
in Huntington I observed a Junco that was mostly uniformly pale brown- even
on its underside.
And finally, there has been a pair of ravens passing by with some
regularity, often carrying misc. (nesting?) debris.
