New birds from the Deck
I walked to the post office and when I came back down the side of the house along the deck to get to the front door I heard a small rustling sound. I looked down and on the dark rocks and drift logs I think I saw a fox sparrow. It darted in and out between the rocks, scratching in the seaweed debris and you could see it reach out with its beak and catch bugs. I didn't even notice that there were any bugs out. It seemed to be really dark, a lot darker then the pictures, but it had a lot of streaks and had the behavior of a fox sparrow. You don't see many song birds this close to the water, especially since the two neighborhood eagles like to sit on the roof peak!
