While walking the dogs late yesterday afternoon I explored the abandoned stretch of Mineah Rd. off of Mt. Pleasant. At the far end of this stretch where the road disappears into a thicket I found a single eastern towhee accompanied by three fox sparrows and a couple of singing song sparrows.

Came home to the song of a Towhee drinking his tea (with ice cubes, I hope). Nearby was a rollicking Ruby-crowned Kinglet, and at the feeder were both early Chipping Sparrow and late Tree Sparrow. Happiness! Nancy Dickinson Mecklenburg -- Cayugabirds-L List Info:
