Fox Sparrow, February 14, 2018

ABC Wednesday, Wild Bird Wednesday, and Wednesday Around The World
F is for Fox Sparrow

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, January 26, 2018
I was trying to photograph a small flock of Goldfinches and Pine Siskins under my bird feeders when I noticed a larger bird with them - a Fox Sparrow! I made this photo through my dining room window so it is not as clear as I would like it to be.

Fox Sparrows, Passerella iliaca, are migratory birds that we see here in the southeastern United States only in the Winter. Their Summer breeding grounds range from the Pacific Northwest area of the United States to Alaska and all across Canada. They vary in color from east to west, so the Fox Sparrows you see may be slightly different than this one.

Have a wonderful day!
