After all the recent posts about American
Tree Sparrows I was bemoaning the fact that I hadn't seen anything new at the
feeders for a while. But I just checked the backyard group of feeders and
bingo, there was a single American Tree Sparrow feeding on the ground with the
juncos, white-throats and fox sparrows.
A note about odd bird food: I hung a bunch
of grapes that were too sour for my taste from a tree limb and the only taker
was a red-bellied woodpecker, so far. I think I'll try throwing out some
frozen peas--I don't like them much either.
