A pair of Fox Sparrows stayed around here until the day after Thanksgiving (Nov.27). One of them had a droopy left wing and I was assuming could not fly long distances. Now they seem to have gone. White-throated Sparrows have been around for several weeks. A flock of A.Tree Sparrows were in the bushes around the bridge on Dodge Rd. a couple of weekends ago. Yesterday we had a C.Grackle and a female Cowbird at our feeders. That was unusual. Today with the warmer weather most birds are foraging elsewhere, except for a wise old Crow (no tags) walking around picking up bits of suet under the feeder.
