White-throated Sparrow ~ pretty bird

Photo by BarrytheBirder

Our first White-throated Sparrow showed up yesterday, three days earlier than last year.   Last year the weather was beautiful in mid-April, while this year the weather is cold, windy and quite unpleasant, but the White-throated was three days earlier.   Go figure.   Anyway, the sparrow seemed to be renewing acquaintances with the lagging Juncos and the newly arrived Cowbirds.   I'm not sure we give sparrows enough credit for their appearance.   The White-throated and White-crowned are thoroughly pleasant to look at, and especially in the early spring.   Please comment if you wish, and I hope you have some to admire also.
