It was another cold, cloudy Winter day and I wasn’t sure whether to go out at all, but I took a chance and headed for Terrapin Nature Center. It was another disappointing day, with very few water birds around, and only the usual suspects willing to pose. Here’s the best of the shots.
Size & Shape
Fox Sparrows are large, round-bodied sparrows with stout bills and medium-length tails.
Though highly variable (see “Regional Differences”), Fox Sparrows are generally rust-brown above with a mix of rust and gray on the head, and heavy brownish splotches on the flanks and the center of the chest. The bill can range from yellowish to dark gray.”
The lovely Carolina Wren has saved many a bad photo day.
