White-throated and White-crowned Sparrows' fall migration peaks in mid-October

Photo by Barry Wallace
Here's a photo that I took in the backyard of a White-crowned Sparrow (left) and a White-throated Sparrow sharing a close moment beneath the feeders.   The southern migration of both these bird species normally starts in Canada in September, peaks around mid-October and ends in November.   Meanwhile, over the past week, Dark-eyed Juncos (see photo below) have arrived to visit the feeders.

Please comment if you wish.
