This guy showed up in my Abbotsford yard today. He looked quite bloated and kept closing his eyes. I hope he/she is not sick

I think my "sick" looking WTSP from Oct 14 is ok! One showed up today which looks like the same bird [and healthy]

Great shots Bert! Glad to hear your sparrow is alright! Always nice to see these not-often seen sparrows here.
