Did some research on the spring departures of White-throated Sparrow and Junco
here from my yard in Harwinton CT over the past 25 years of keeping records.
WHITE-THROATED SPARROW: The earliest final spring departure was - April 8, 1995
The latest final spring departure was - May 21, 2006
Average departure spring date: April 29
JUNCO: The earliest final spring departure was - April 8, 1995
The latest final spring departure was - May 13, 1996
Average departure spring date: April 25
Both these birds do not breed in my area, but the Junco does nest just 5 miles north of here.

find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts." ......Rachel Carson
