There has been a sudden increase in the number and variety of sparrows migrating through the city parks. In the last couple of days Prospect Park has been host to Chipping Sparrow, Clay-colored Sparrow, Savannah Sparrow, Song Sparrow, Lincoln's Sparrow, Swamp Sparrow, White-throated Sparrow and Dark-eyed Junco. By Halloween the Fox Sparrows will have arrived for their winter respite in New York City.
