Two were seen briefly this evening in our backyard. One was probably a juvenile, judging by ragged plumage and behavior towards the other one. They came in to our feeder and moved around the neighborhood for about 10 minutes before departing to who knows where. We could track them by fragments of song. Lauderdale is near the intersection of Larpenteur Ave. and Highway 280 about 1 mile from the State Fair Grounds. Our house is located near the corner of Summer and Pleasant Sts.
