A fox sparrow stops by on its way north

We were lucky again this year to have a red fox sparrow stop by on its way north. These large sparrows overwinter in central and eastern North America and breed in the taiga of Canada and Alaska. This fellow came through at about the same time that the white throated sparrows returned.
