theafternoonbirderFox Sparrow! A bird I had great difficulty photographing in Ottawa. They get a different sub-species in the west - the Sooty (versus the Red we get in the East). There are 2 other sub-species as well. Who knew?!
- keerpryzWhat a beauty!
- nikon_birderLove the chest parttern! You got him finally! 👍
- the_lodge18Yes, I think I have a picture of one but I'm in the East. He looks nothing like this one.
- paulenglishimages@theafternoonbirder I haven't seen a Fox Sparrow yet! Yes, that breast pattern is really striking, great capture! 👍
- theafternoonbirder@nikon_birder yes! Now I need a red one next fall in ottawa!
- theafternoonbirder@the_lodge18 when I first saw this one I wasn't sure what it was. It's a fox sparrow! Or wait maybe not? But then I checked the book and saw the variations. The ones in the east are way more red.
- theafternoonbirder@paulenglishimages thanks Paul! 😀
- zimsphotographyBeauty of a shot! That feather pattern is awesome too Laura!
- theafternoonbirder@zimsphotography thanks Barbara!
- suzannebertonWow sweet one 🍁💯💯💯
- all_things_pretty_photographyExcellent! It looks like he has little mountains on his chest!
- theafternoonbirder@all_things_pretty_photography it does! Perfect for a Vancouver bird!
- eontbirderLovely bird. When you're ready to really nerd it up, we can discuss the subspecies within the subspecies groups! There are so many! Fox sparrows are a neat study :)
- theafternoonbirder@eontbirder I had no idea this species was so diverse! And woah, not sure I'm ready to delve into the sub sub species... one nerd step at a time! Lol 🤓
- looby.loo.looGreat shot! And what a beautiful little bird.
