10/14  Orange backyard
5 PURPLE FINCHES Total-3 Females, 2 males.  maybe they will stay  through 
the winter.
Also there was one unusual sparrow which looked like a small female house  
sparrow but with a mutely striped crown, pale solid breast and subtle brown  
on its back  with a pale beak.  When checking Sibley's, it most  resembled 
a first winter Chipping sparrow, so that's what I will go with.
