The Birds Are Moving Through

Had two new winter birds behind the kitchen this morning - A Tree Sparrow and a big, bright Fox Sparrow (didn't get a photo of him - yet).

   Tree Sparrow, Spizella arborea.  He'll gather a bunch of friends and, with luck, they'll stick around till spring.

   White-throated Sparrow, Zanotrichia albicollis, the Canada bird.  Still a few of these around, but not for long.  They'll be heading south now.

   Bunch of Juncos here, some of whom, with luck, will stay the winter.  I'll try to get some photos.

   The Fox Sparow made only a brief stop yesterday, so I expect it isn't the same one who spent the winter here last year.  I'll keep the camera ready.

  1. I love watching the birds, but need to spend some time figuring out what is which of many of the smaller varieties. Lovely photos.
