I was doing my usual feederwatch activity for day one of two for this week. I had quite a number of Robins on the Eastern Red Cedar as it is full of berries.
It was then that I noted this bird and on first glance without my binoculars, thought it was a song sparrow. However, on magnification I noted the eye ring and beak coloration specific to this bird. It has been out there for a couple hours now. I was thrilled to have seen such a rare bird for this area , and sad at the same time as they appear to be on vulnerable conservation status. I will be keeping an eye for the next few days to see if it hangs around. Hopefully its just a first year bird late on its migration.
