we haven’t seen in our yard since late winter/early spring. But even more exciting was at least one White-crowned Sparrow! I don’t believe we’ve ever had one in our yard before, and on my regular biking route I usually only get them at the Les Bois racetrack.
I know they are here in the winter in many places, but they’ve never before chosen to grace our yard with their presence. Way cool.
