1-6-13,  Hamden backyard.  40 RUSTY BLACKBIRDS.  These guys have become very 
regular for most of the morning at least but very flighty and skittish birds.  
Have only noted on grackle and a few redwings at times as well.  Still down to 
just the one FOX SPARROW but have a SAVANNAH SPARROW feeding on the ground where 
we scatter seed which is quite unusual for us. He appears at times along with an 
AMERICAN TREE SPARROW.  Goldfinch have grown back up to around 40 but still no 
redpoll here.
