We got 3-4 inches of snow yesterday, and this morning there were a couple of surprises waiting for me at the feeder. In addition to the standard finches, juncos, chickadees, and cardinals, this morning brought in a Downy Woodpecker, and a pair of Fox Sparrows. I was particularly jazzed about the sparrows, which usually only pass through the area on migration in the spring and the fall.
After breakfast and playing with the girls for a while, Anna and I headed to the duck pond, where we spotted an Eastern Phoebe right off the bat, and also identified a male Common Goldeneye who seems to have appeared in the last week!
