Today is the first time I have ever seen a Fox Sparrow. Of course it was
cloudy and lighting was crappy, so detail wasn't all that great. According to
my books, these guys winter i the southern U.S. and summer in northern
Canada. Hopefully I can spot these guys again with some good light,
before they're gone. Here's what I got.

20D, 100-400L @ 400mm, f/5.6, ISO 800

Mmmm, I'm Getting Hungry!

Hi wm, nice looking colors on this sparrow and I like the sharp, almost Redpollish looking beak. Looks like that little bit of snow is on the melt as well. Wishing you a quick and effective spring.

Glad to hear it's going fast. I'm right now on a few days holiday and hope to go out and find something different over the next few days. Trying to take advantage of the weather here, which is clearing up some, and I wish the same for you.
