A dozen or more kinglets were in the yard this morning with the arrival of a strong cold front. Lots of Brown Creepers moving throught today, too. Purple Finches are still at feeder (about 12) and at least one of the immature males is starting to show a purple rump. At least a dozen mostly White-throated Sparrows and two or three White-crowned still here. We also had our first junco of the fall today. A fledgling Mourning Dove was in the driveway, hiding under the wheel of one of the cars.
