Fox Sparrow, A Lifer

Fox Sparrow

I was surprised to see a different bird at the feeders.  
I'm pretty sure it's a Fox Sparrow.  Especially after a
couple of birder friends suggested it.  At first I thought it was
a young Harris's Sparrow but at closer inspection I could
see it had different coloring.  It had a black spot in the
middle of it's chest.  It must be migrating because I've 
never seen these before.
