Slightly off-topic: Today I watched a white-headed (leucistic) chipping sparrow eating seeds for a while. It was fascinating and beautiful! My mind associated it with a tiny bald eagle, although not the same shape. The head was completely covered in white feathers with a yellow beak (and yellow legs).

We had some for a couple of weeks but now they seem to have disappeared. Haven't seen any for the last week and the juice is not going down at all. Our neighbors cut down a japanese maple last week and we're wondering if they were nesting in it but we live in a very wooded neighborhood. I was reading another forum in which a lot of folks are reporting very sparse sightings so far.

Ours have disappeared too. I guess that cold snap sent them back south.
