Yesterday afternoon a beautiful Fox Sparrow came in for some ground feeding. It was persistent up until dark (which comes early these days). Hoping it'll stay around for a while. A few days ago four female/immature Evening Grosbeaks dropped in for a few minutes. Bring on the Redpolls and Siskins! I find myself reluctant to leave the house fearing that I"ll miss some of these irruptive birds!
