At least I think these are Fox Sparrows.  If anyone knows differently, please let me know.

Fox Sparrow facts:

  • Fox Sparrows vary greatly across their range but generally are rust-brown above with a mix of rust and gray on the head, and heavy brownish splotches on the flanks and the center of the chest.
  • They spend a lot of time on the ground,  kicking away leaf litter in search of insects and seeds.
  • Although Fox Sparrows are native to North America, individual Fox Sparrows have been spotted in Greenland, Iceland, Ireland, Germany, and Italy.  These birds probably made their transatlantic journey by ship.

Although the birds in my photos were at my bird feeder in Georgia, this video was filmed in Maine.
