Seen a white-throated sparrow. It was at a mixed feeder. I know they are not supposed to be here yet, so I do not know if this is a hold over or perhaps an injured bird that was released. Top part of the head was black with a narrow white stripe from the forehead to the upper part of the neck. A broader white stripe, passing into bright orange, over each eye, a narrow black stripe extending from the eye down the neck. Sides and fore-part of neck and breast are bluish-grey with the rest of the underparts greyish-white. Tail dusky brown. White patch in the throat area. Tried to get a photo but it didn't like me getting close and quickly took to the trees.
