Knoxville's Wild Birds Unlimited website. Visit the article to see the beautiful wing colors in the overall grayish Swamp Sparrow and the exquisite maroon-like reds in the Fox Sparrow.
All of these birds were new to me last fall. All of them are now imprinted in my mind through close-up views, photography and sketching. Sweet, sweet sparrows!
