I spent an hour or so with Jean Richmond at her Alamo house today. It rained, it slacked off, but many birds were coming to her feeders and backyard. She has a White-throated Sparrow which comes in, but the couple of times I have been there since the new year it has not shown. A Fox Sparrow was also very shy today and did not show. But there were plenty of White- and Golden-crowned Sparrows, House Finches, Lesser and American Goldfinches, both Towhees, Chickadees, a Bewick's Wren, Juncos and a White-breasted Nuthatch.
The rain may have kept her Nuttall's and Downy Woodpeckers away, as well as the Mourning Doves. She has been seeing them regularly, and usually I do, too. Since I left shortly after 2 PM, it may have been too early for the Hermit Thrush to show. She told me she also has had many Robins and Cedar Waxwings on occasion.
