Feathers on Friday

The Song Sparrow is one of the most familiar North American sparrows. They are found throughout most of North America, but the birds of different areas can look surprisingly different. Song Sparrows of the Desert Southwest are pale, while those in the Pacific Northwest are dark and heavily streaked. Like many other songbirds, the male Song Sparrow uses its song to attract mates as well as defend its territory. This beauty sat and posed awhile for me, and then sang a bit too.DSCN5472

  1. Lisa–I just love this sequence of photos and can almost picture this little guy talking:
    Photo #1 Hmm-mm. Do I want to smile or not?
    Photo #2: Hey! Can you give a guy a little space? I’m having my picture taken.
    Photo #3: Ok, lady. I’m ready. Take the picture.
