For the past two days we have had a large dark Song Sparrow at our feeder.
The bird is almost the same size as a Fox Sparrow and is very dark rusty, in
obvious contrast to the regular Song Sparrows we have here. I have not had
time to do the research on this, but am guessing that it is a Yakutat Song
Sparrow that breeds in the Gulf of Alaska coast and some winter in the
Little River (2 miles south of Mendocino on the Mendocino Coast)
