FOX SPARROW (Passerella iliaca) - breed in thickets and chaparral across northern North America & south along the western mountains. They forage on leaf litter and bare ground, usually under dense cover. During the breeding season they eat mainly insects. They find their prey with a “double-scratch” involving a hop forward and an immediate hop back, during which they simultaneously scratch both feet backwards through the leaf litter--I see them do this all the time in my Auburn backyard!

White-Crowned Sparrow. Very handsome sparrow, often found in groups on the ground under feeders or near brush piles. May be seen year-round in Victoria though more common in summer.

This is a song sparrow. We found one stuck on sticky trap paper. It ripped off its flight feathers and now it cant fly. What should we do????
