New yard bird!

Fox sparrow

Fox sparrow – not a new yard bird

This morning I saw a ruby-crowned kinglet flitting around the garden, going after some of the seed heads of the stalks I left up over the winter. I ran out right away to try and get a photo, but it was gone before I got out back. Cute little thing, maybe I’ll get another chance. And to think, it wasn’t even on my wish list. Just goes to show that you never know what to expect, just keep looking and paying attention. I sat outside for a while in the snow and wind, hoping it return, or that maybe a hermit thrush would show up. But there are still plenty of fox sparrows around to take pictures of.
