Numbers of white-throated sparrows showing up in Norfolk, as many as 9 at a time at my feeder, generally feeding with equal numbers of chipping sparrows. Often a few tan-striped morphs with gray throats mixed in. Interesting article about these on North Country Public Radio from 2014,

Anyone else seeing these and how much variation is there?
