The eastern population of Fox Sparrows is the "red" form like this one. These are large sparrows, mostly rusty red colored with gray on the face and a white breast with red checks.
Our Fox Sparrows are migrating through now to their breeding grounds in northern Canada. It's always a pleasure seeing them, and this was just one of 6 birds feeding under my feeders and in the leaf litter at the edge of the woods.
