SONG SPARROW (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Sparrow - 2

I was about to cross the bridge that leads to the other side of the park when I saw this song sparrow just ahead of me. He wasn’t easily startled and I took a few shots. These sparrows are common little birds, but their colouring is striking. I believe the bird is a mature individual although given his stance in the first photo, I wondered for a moment. He reminded me of kid trying to steady himself.

  3. I love song sparrows. I’ve had the good fortune to have a nesting pair in the yard two years in a row. A sweet song to wake up to.
    Your captures are excellent!

  4. Such a plain little bird with a beautiful song. He looks pretty in his own understated way.

  5. The weathered wood of the bridge adds a nice touch.

  7. Oh these lovely birds used to frequent our house when i was little and they slowly stopped coming by. Curiously, I heard that they are now endangered in the state i live in, in India! 😦
    It’s so lovely to see them in these pictures 🙂

  8. Looks like he’s about to break into a song and dance. Great shot
