My Weekly Bird ABC

In our collection of bird pictures I could only find one 'F' bird.
The Fox Sparrow makes his appearance every spring.
These pictures were all taken on our yard and not very far from the front door.
The picture above was taken in fall as the Fox Sparrow
was migrating south.
Farewell my friend,please hurry back in spring.
The earth is the Lord's,and everything in it.
Psalm 24:1

  15. I have yet to see a Fox Sparrow here where I live in SW Ohio. I suppose I have seen then and just thought they were a finch or something else. I will have to listen to their songs and try to pick them out this summer.
