First snow at the feeders this winter

Photos by BarrytheBirder
Five Starlings (above) showed up at the feeders today and the White-throated Sparrow (below) that arrived yesterday, was back again today.   This brings the latest winter feeder count up to 19 species.
The record for Mourning Doves at the small square feeders, seen above and below, is six birds at one time.   Even the small juncos, redpolls, goldfinches and Tree Sparrows limit themselves to four or five at a time.  All of those four smaller birds are showing up in large numbers early in this winter season.
Please comment if you wish.
