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.
