All winter long I glance at and under my bird feeders dozens of times a day. What a thrill when something unexpected appears. This morning I saw this years first (for me) fox sparrow busily scratching at seed otherwize wasted at the base of  a feeder.  Fox sparrows migrate through Lochaber for about one  week and are then gone; so if you would like to see one …now is the time.
