Fox Sparrow Double-scratching

Please click on photo above for video

This Fox Sparrow was double-scratching by lifting both large feet off the ground at the same time and kicking back leaves and vegetation to uncover seeds and insects. Other sparrows do it too, but not all. Dark-eyed Juncos, White-throated Sparrows and Eastern Towhees double-scratch, but European House Sparrows don't. Toronto on 25 October 2016
