Fox Sparrow Visits

Fox Sparrow

Migrating sparrows are starting to move through Mid-Coast Maine. Our resident Song Sparrow (named Belle) has returned to her stump by the river; I think I briefly caught sight of a White-Throated Sparrow yesterday (not long enough to count it); and we expect to see the first Chipping Sparrow any day.

This morning we had a Fox Sparrow visit for the first time ever. We’ve seen them migrating through at our regular birding locations . . . but never in our yard.

Fox Sparrow spend their winters south of New England and summer in northern Canada . . . so this fellow will be moving on soon.
