This Song Sparrow -like bird arrived in our yard yesterday. It has
been here several times before over the years but none of his short
visits gave us such good views as this one. Today it appeared just
before noon and spent a long time scratching in the pine needles
beneath the white pine. This may be the last time we see it until its
spring visit next year. It probably goes unreported because of its
Song Sparrow likeness.
