BirdWeb: Seattle Audubon's Guide to the Birds of Washington State
Bird of the Week
There are four races of Fox Sparrows that occur across North America, two of which are seen in Washington State. The "Sooty" Fox Sparrow winters in Washington, and the "Slate-colored" Fox Sparrow breeds in the eastern Cascade Mountains.
Birding Site of the Week
The 640-acre Marymoor Park is worth a visit any time of year. Migrating songbirds in the willows and cottonwoods are a possibility now, as are wintering waterfowl on Lake Sammamish. Look for sparrow flocks near the Lot D parking lot.
