2 gorgeous male PURPLE FINCHES at my backyard feeders just now! Have seen one there for a few days.
Also, with all the reports of birds with unusual white feathers lately, here is another: a new student in SFO who is a beginning birder, phoned me yesterday to report that she thinks she saw on E. Shore Drive (NY Rt. 34), Lansing, near Rod and Gun Club, a TURKEY VULTURE with a white BODY (not wing). It had the red head she said and was sitting on ground near the road as they drove by. She is pretty sure she knows what TVs look like.
