[TN-Bird] yard birds

Hi folks,

Today Allan and I saw our first of season Dark-eyed Juncos (2) and
one female or immature Purple Finch in our south Blount County yard.

Prior to the arrival of the wind, rain, and falling temperatures,
there were slightly under 10 gazillion American Robins, a handful of
Red-winged Blackbirds (all immature males) and about 20 Cedar
Waxwings in the yard.  Interestingly, I didn't see any of the above
(like, not even one robin) in any of our neighbors yards.  I chalk
this up to habitat management - lots of bushes, some water, and the
ever important CAT TRAP.  The local humane society knows me by face.

The greenway in Maryville continues to have hundreds of sparrows,
though I've not been there with binoculars, so I've only identified
Song, White-throat and Swamp.
