Sparrow Migration Season Has Begun

White-throated Sparrow

When I started birding . . . all sparrows looked alike.  They were brown, with stripes on their head and bellies . . . and they all looked alike.  

Slowly, very, very slowly I’ve been able to tell the difference and now look forward to the sparrows moving south in the fall.

Today I got a White-throated Sparrow and a Lincoln’s Sparrow, birds that do occasionally nest in Maine but are really only seen in numbers in the fall.

I’ll be looking for a Fox Sparrows over the next few weeks.
