The usual suspects

Well, with most of the usual suspects out of the way, as predicted, it's getting hard already. In the last 3 days I've only spotted 2 more species! It was nearly 3 with a flock of what I thought were Goldfinches flying alongside the truck. However, as I couldn't take a look at them for long enough (trying to keep both eyes on the road of course), I couldn't guarantee that's what they were, so they didn't make the list.
What does surprise me a little is that what was once a common and familiar sight has not made the list yet. I'm talking of the little brown jobbies (as Bill Odie refers to them) Sparrows. I wonder when they'll make an appearance?
So here's the list from the last 3 days, and now what will become more infrequent are my posts. I don't see the need to post everyday, especially when I'm not seeing anything. So don't think I'm getting bored of this already, I'm not. I'm just trying to save you, the dear reader, from getting bored.
