We have had a Harris’ Sparrow at our feeder for the past three days. My field guides indicate that this sparrow winters in the central U.S. then migrates north to Manitoba/Saskatchewant. So, it would appear to be far east of its normal range. (Note: This is an extremely rare bird for our area and one of only a handfull of sightings over the years. D.M.)

Location: Kawartha Hideaway, Buckhorn Lake
