More Snowbirds

I stopped at the Rural Cemetery in Southborough and walked a little along the Sudbury Reservoir Trail.  Dark-Eyed Juncos, White-Throated Sparrows, Song Sparrows and Mute Swans were the only birds of note.

 Mute Swans (of five seen)

 Dark-Eyed Junco

The Dark-Eyed Junco is a winter visitor in our state.  I saw my first ones for this season this past weekend.  They are definitely a sign of the coming season and are also known by the nickname of "snowbirds".

 White-Throated Sparrow

There was a small flock of sparrows eating seed (presumably) from among the freshly scattered grass seed at the cemetery.
