Fox Sparrow - Burnaby

A west coast version of the fox sparrow found with many others at Piper Spit at Burnaby Lake. I always wondered why they called these guys fox sparrows until I saw the east coast subspecies which can be fox red. Another interesting tid bit about these birds, is that they are easy to differentiate from the song sparrows but the arrowhead shapes on their chests versus just the stripes of the song sparrows.
