Fox Sparrow

Last weekend, I just happened to look outside my bedroom window to see two fox sparrows foraging on the ground with several other sparrows!  I tried to get some photos through the windows, but it just wasn’t clear enough.  I had to venture outside and risk having them fly off.

In the rain, I walked out to the deck and tried to remain quiet, but they were on to me and began to fly into the trees.  As they left, I got a few shots before they moved further into the woods.  It’s not the best, but I’ll take it!  This would be the 143th bird that I’ve photographed in Dutchess County!
