28 October 2011 – two trapped sparrows

Opposite alcoves held a trapped Song Sparrow (west) and a beautiful female Spotted Towhee (east) this morning.  The Song Sparrow banged the window a few times and seemed to fly out unharmed once I got close to it.  The towhee might have been a bit stunned, but she flew up strongly into a tree on my arrival, and all signs were that she’d move on unharmed.

Yesterday’s Lincoln’s Sparrow is still there.
