Among the many purple finches, house finches
and other feeder birds I had a yellow variant house finch at a backyard feeder
today. Haven't seen one this yellow in several years. Two yb
sapsuckers continue to come to suet and five red fox sparrows grow fat on
sunflower seed. The birds recognize that spring is coming--Carolina
chickadees, cardinals and titmice are singing and the males are chasing each
other around the woods here north of Union.
