Dear Jamie and Tweeters,
Yes, Old Sam Peabody is singing good-bye to me in my yard every morning and evening now, too. 
Way back when I started birding in my native New York, I decided on impulse one day that the White-throated Sparrow was my favorite species of bird. It's still my "official favorite species." About as meaningful as naming a stadium after a company, but there it is!
Yours truly,
Gary Bletsch
