Just had a fox sparrow outside the kitchen window. Tried to get a photo, but too many twigs in the way. The chevron markings, large feet and bi-colored bill were all clearly visible. We’ve had them here before, but luckily just happened to catch the siting while waiting for my tea. I wonder if it heard the microwave—it tilted its head just as it beeped. Then promptly took its morning constitutional and left.
Still no siting of Anna’s nesting in our garden yet. One (of three females) has been collecting fluff and leaving the premises. Can’t get a spot where its taking it—yet. On a collection run the other day, it dropped a tiny tuft of fluff and dropped down in front of me and picked it right up. So funny to see this, rather than go back to the “giant ball” and get another bit.
