White-throated Sparrow.

First trace of snow this morning. Brisk hike with Jack. Saw my first American Tree Sparrow of the season—but missed a good chance at a photo. In fact, my only bird pic from today is this blurry one of a White-throated Sparrow. (I swear that’s what it is.)

Yellow-rumped Warbler.

This bright, frosty early morning hike started off very quiet—which was not altogether disappointing—but ended up with another flock of bluebirds (larger than yesterday’s), attended by a group of Yellow-rumped Warblers, some chickadees, and a random House Finch.
