On my walk today along the rail-trail from Jackson Park to Ackison Road, I saw and heard a number of Golden-crowned Kinglets, Dark-eyed Juncos, and White-throated Sparrows. One Rusty Blackbird flew over, making its “squeaky clothesline” call. Later, I saw a large flock of American Robins at Wallis and Parkhill. Two female Purple Finch have been visiting our feeder in recent days, in addition to several White-throats and Juncos.
