In our yard, foraging with Gambel's White-crowned Sparrows. I haven't seen one around for months, only sooties. A late bird in Gaines for sure, though his Fox Sparrow species description is baffling. So, who knows how late it is. Definitely not a big-billed FOSP, nor a red race. Only 10-20% of our Gambel's are adults these days.
