Pit Stop

I'm surprised at the number of birds that have just happened to stop in my yard or nearby during their seasonal migration. Is my yard a special pit stop? This is the Harris's Sparrow, and he still has quite a ways to go, heading all the way to northern Canada. 

Other migratory birds pit stopping in my yard or nearby were the snow goose last fall, the white-crowned sparrow I saw a year ago and again early this spring, and most recently the fox sparrow who moved on as soon as the temps hit 60 for longer than a few days.
