3 November 2018 – Dark-eyed Junco

This particular junco seemed big to me, with fascinating white wingbars and an apparent extra white tail. These characters strongly make me suspect that this is one of the White-winged race of Dark-eyed Junco from the Black Hills of South Dakota.

26 October 2018 – Chipping Sparrow and trapped Lincoln’s Sparrow

Amazing that this was just the third Chipping Sparrow I’ve found in 9 years of window collision monitoring.

The Lincoln’s Sparrow was in the portico, flew west and took a sharp right, only to get re-trapped.

22 October 2018 – White-throated Sparrow plus a bonus Song Sparrow

This morning I found another White-throated Sparrow. In the last two days, the number of this species I’ve found since 2009 has doubled from two to four.  We’ve also reached a yearly milestone with now 50 casualties for 2018.

 

For a bit of added sadness, I also happened upon this Song Sparrow at the Kerr-Drummond complex.
