A small flock of Purple Finches showed up at my feeders in west Knox County 
this afternoon.  There were three of them, all females or immatures.  Exciting 
because it's the first I've had more than an occasonal single individual in the 
yard.  The warm weather (relatively speaking) apparently fooled a House Finch 
as he was singing up a storm.  I've also been seeing a lot of Common Grackles 
in the yard this December which is unusual in the winter months.  Had 4 at the 
feeders this past Sunday and at least 15 one day last week (mostly in with a 
flock of starlings across the street but a few in the back yard also).
