Yesterday we had 2 Fox Sparrows at our feeder. This is one of my favorite sparrows because it's so colorful (for a sparrow!) and we don't get many. I love the rufous, foxy color on this bird. There is geographic variation in the coloring of Fox Sparrows, with the eastern ones being the most rufous color. It's also one of our largest sparrows, so it really stands out among the juncos, song and tree sparrows dining at our feeders.
