It’s almost that time of year…sparrow time! The Florida Panhandle is easily the best region of the state for winter sparrow diversity. More than a dozen species are regularly recorded here in the winter. One of my favorites is the Fox Sparrow. Gorgeous aren’t they? I actually photographed this one in Central Park in New York City but I have seen several here in the panhandle. Other sparrows that show up in the panhandle every winter include Chipping, Savannah, Swamp, Song, White-throated, Clay-colored, Vesper, Field, Grasshopper, White-crowned, Henslow’s, Nelson’s, Lincoln’s and Dark-eyed Junco. Stay tuned for a future post on where to find them in the Florida Panhandle.
