Friday's triumph

Well, for those of you not in Connecticut, yesterday after the rain we had snow - just a little, but who needs that! Today it's still cool, breezy and overcast but at least it's not snowing. After lunch we took twenty minutes to look in the scrubby edges around the big warehouse, then mid-afternoon did a quick survey of the A21 courtyard... And still the sparrows come.
today's birders: Lynn and Sue
today's birds:
Red-tailed Hawk
Canada Goose
Rock Pigeon
Eastern Phoebe
American Crow
Blue Jay
Hermit Thrush
Ruby-crowned Kinglet
Chipping Sparrow - biiig flock
Song Sparrow
White-throated Sparrow
Field Sparrow - several today
Savannah Sparrow
Dark-eyed Junco
and, yessss
Lincoln's Sparrow, photo below
And, while leaving the building this afternoon, two more birds:
Palm Warbler
Yellow-rumped Warbler
I'm almost certain we've seen both of these already, so neither are new for our list, but beautiful little birds. Palm warbler below.
