New Winter Songster

It seems we have our first confirmed winter arrival.  And that would be White Throated Sparrow.  Not that I saw one, mind you, but I heard that delightful melody: "O Canada Canada."  That song is cheery and reminds me of spring, when I typically hear this bird sing.  It is a tune only surpassed in my opinion by the Wood Thrush and the Song Sparrow.  But it is more than good enough to provide a bit of good cheer as winter closes in.  I will start watching the scratching areas for them.  So we have one arrival.  Who is next?
