Friday, April 08, 2005today, noon, walking back from Logan Square, i had 2 pairs of HOUSE FINCHES. i thought one of them might be a purple finch, but that turned out to be wishful thinking, as i noted the gray wingfeathers. I also saw what i believe was a VEERY, though i didn't get a great look, so it might have been a young ROBIN. I also have something in the yard here which i can't ID, a sparrow or another kind of finch maybe. I'm thinking they are WHITE-CROWNED SPARROWS.
