Two of my favorite northern sparrows made their first-of-the-season appearance today on the heels of a cold front, the Fox and the Harris's.

Well done Al! I really like the BG on the Fox Sparrow image! I hope to see some Harris's this winter as they're one of my favorites too.

Its always nice to see a new species, so thanks for the Harris sparrow. Both beautifully photographed, and the Fox sparrow is a belter.
