(Sooty) Fox Sparrow

One of the most common birds (at least for my group of counters) on the Tillamook Christmas Bird Count was the Fox Sparrow. It wasn't the most numerous, but it probably showed up at more of our stops than did any other species. Of course, it usually did NOT show up until we started "pishing" (that is, making a variety of sounds all related to "shhhhh") and then several usually came up out of the blackberry brambles to find the source of that noise.
