Fox Sparrow

While waiting for the Painted Bunting to show itself at Seaside this past Sunday, I saw my first Fox Sparrow. That's right, I've never seen one before. I always thought it odd that I wasn't seeing any as I don't think they are uncommon here. So while I struck out on the Painted Bunting, I did see a new bird while trying which is always a thrill.


  1. Cool- I also only just saw my first at Sauvie Island last month!

  2. How fun! I had them for years in my Keizer backyard but didn't know who they were. Funny that they were often with the Towhees in my backyard (just as he is in your picture).
