Tweeters,

On Thursday, I had my first WHITE-THROATED SPARROW near my
feeder, eating seed I had thrown on the ground for my Juncos. I'm not sure
of how rare they are for Seattle, but it was a new bird for me in the
city and certainly in my backyard (44th and Phinney).  The bird is
still around, re-appears a few times per day.  Do other Seattle bird
feeding folks see many White-Throated Sparrows in Fall/Winter?  I'm
curious.

I've only recently begun feeding birds in the backyard, and looking
forward to attracting lots of new birds.  Any tips (esp. for Seattle)
are appreciated.

Happy Birding,
Fred Parent
