Fox Sparrow Visits With Redpolls

It's not the greatest photo since the birds were out in the yard (and I desperately need a new lens), but I had to snap it. Not often you see a Fox Sparrow with redpolls.

Fox Sparrows do periodically overwinter here in the Cities, but it's still a fun sight to see on a bright sunny Friday with promises of springlike weather around the corner. This one did not overwinter in our yard. New arrival or an overwintering bird? Guessing it overwintered nearby but it still amps up my excitement for spring migration!
