FOS White-throated Sparrow

Our first WTSP appeared this morning, a patio species for (I think) the 19th year in the past 20. Once a rarity in the yard, it is now regular and, recently, more numerous: at least 3 for the past several years. WTSPs are apparently becoming more common regionally, but I’ve also read speculation that young follow adults to wintering patches, which might account for the increasing numbers locally.
