Sparrows in Center City

White-throated Sparrows (Zonotrichia albicollis) were calling and flitting on the ground and in the trees in the park at the southeast corner of 18th and Cherry today.  [there was also a Winter Wren there on the 27th of October – RH]

There was also jimsonweed (Datura stramonium) growing and flowering there, in the far northwest corner of the park, this past summer.
