Sparrows have been very low in Joplin too,
this winter. I've only had one White-throated
our Joplin yard this winter. There is a Fox
that has wintered at the Joplin Nature
Very low numbers when I go out into the country to
for sparrows too.
Juncos, House Finch and Goldfinch numbers here seem
be ok. White-crowned, White-throated,
Lowest that I have seen per my paltry record
many a winter.
