The last Fox Sparrow I saw was on Blackhead Road in Dec. 2011. Clearly, that one missed the boat when it was time to return to its wintering grounds. As far as I know, that bird was not seen after that. Finally, three months later, it is a great indicator of more to come when the Fox Sparrow begins to turn up in a variety of location. We are all watching in anticipation to see what comes next.
