Lots of birds around today and migrants are beginning to appear. A female PURPLE FINCH had breakfast at our hopper feeder in the company of a multitude of house finches. Keep looking. There's probably something at your feeders that you don't see very often. Bill McAneny, TBurg --

The Purple Finches and Chipping Sparrows have made it to Auburn. I got the Sparrow a couple of days ago, and just got a beautiful male Purple Finch. It was interesting to compare Sparrows. I had a Tree and Chipping Sparrow feeding side by side. Sent from my iPad -- Cayugabirds-L List

This morning we were visited by a lone male Purple Finch at our feeders. No females. In early spring, with freezing nights and warm days, we get some large maple-sap icicles on one red maple. From our kitchen we get to see the amusing spectacle of chickadees titmouse(s) fluttering, hovering
