Fox Sparrows Arrived
I had my first Fox Sparrow at my bird feeder this evening (CHECK, first for 2008). I just knew it was only a matter of time until these amazing red/gray birds made their arrival into the area. I didn’t get a photo of them since it was cloudy/snowing and its was getting close to sunset! I expect to see them more of these Fox Sparrow over the next few weeks.
Yesterday I thought I had heard the “fee-beee” call of the Eastern Phoebe and instantly froze to listen!! I listened . . . . and then listened some more!! I also looked around for the bird but couldn’t seem to find where the suspected “fee-beee” sound come from! Since I can’t tell if this was something in my head or if I actually heard the Phoebe sing . . . . I can’t officially say they have returned! But it is only a matter of time until I am able officially check them off my year list!
