A field sparrow joined the current sparrows (song, white-throated, and a lone fox) at our feeder station this morning picking through the snow. We last had a redpoll at our Nyjer feeder on Monday of this week. We were also visited by a hermit thrush scratching under the feeder station this morning. This happens rarely, but consistently, every winter where a hermit thrush will show up for a few hours, pick around for food and then we don't see one for weeks on end. I have no idea the significance of this since it is not a bird I associate with feeders, but I thought it was an interesting observation to share.
