I don’t if many others still have American Tree Sparrows around their feeders, but today I still have about 10-12 hanging out in the bushpiles and eating crack corn. I thought it was getting rather late for these birds. Also of note, yesterday I had a small flock (~6-8) Bohemian Waxwings on the west side of the Otonabee River just north of Champlain College at the Trent U campus. These are presumably some of the same group of birds I have seen at this location almost all winter long.
