A large sparrow rarely seen around Montreal. The bird feeds from the ground and builds nest on the ground or low in bushes and trees.
Although stated to be common bird, so far, I saw this bird only once, near a feeder in Victoriaville, Quebec.
Fox sparrows have a grey, brown, white pattern. Specific for this species are the grey eyebrows and brown, grey stripes on the head.
