Fox Sparrows are dark, splotchy sparrows of dense thickets. Named for the rich red hues that many Fox Sparrows wear, this species is nevertheless one of our most variable birds, with four main groups that can range from foxy red to gray to dark brown. The picture of this pretty Fox Sparrow was taken in the Green-wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York.
