Just before noon today, a lone female Purple Finch showed up at our 
feeders among the many House Finch  pairs. No male as yet.
At Monkey Run South Gin & I met Chris Wood who told us about a Fox 
Sparrow on the railroad bed above his house, so we walked there and 
found four bright Fox Sparrows foraging in the open on the railroad bed 
about a half-mile from Monkey Run Rd.
Then up on Mt. Pleasant Rd at the East end, I came upon a nice flock of 
about 40 Snow Buntings feeding on the road, a few males in sharp-looking 
breeding plumage; also among them were several Horned Larks. More 
H.Larks were creeping about among the corn-stalks. No Longspurs visible.
Back home, with the snow flurries swirling around the feeders, there are 
four Red-wing Blackbirds and two Common Grackles, along with Song 
Sparrows, 3 Tree Sparrows and all the other regulars.
