Thick Billed Fox Sparrow

Thick-billed Fox Sparrow
Loon Lake, El Dorado National Forest, California; JUN 2020

I was fortunate enough to observe a Thick-billed Fox Sparrow (Passeralli iliac megarhynchaon) on a recent visit to Loon Lake in the Eldorado National Forest. This large sparrow is a fall to spring visitor in our area but not one that I have recognized before. So, it was a treat. Now that I Observed and identified it, maybe I’ll see some in this area.
