We have had great luck with fox sparrows these last two days at our feeders at home in Centreville (Fairfax county).

Day before yesterday (march 14 2017) we had 4 FOX SPARROWS and yesterday we had 5 at our feeders.

Other sparrow highlights included the lone CHIPPING SPARROW who came for the first time to our feeder over the weekend and has continued to stay since then.

WHITE THROATED SPARROWS continue to stay around - but I feel that this year we have had fewer and leaner ones !!

We had one TOWHEE yesterday. This winter season I have strongly felt that the number of towhees has been drastically lower than last year's numbers. 

Of course the feeders had the usual 4-5 SONG SPARROWS. 

A couple of HOUSE SPARROWS and about 20 DARK EYED JUNCOS complete the sparrow population at our feeder.
