As we crossed a small bridge looking for a heron that had landed nearby, I spotted a white- throated sparrow perched on a branch by the water. I liked the setting, the bird stayed put and I fired off some shots. The third photo is of another sparrow I saw further along the path. It was early fall when I took these photos but as this sparrow doesn’t migrate, I hope for more opportunities to photograph this attractive bird over the winter months. Though I didn’t spot the heron I can’t say I was disappointed with the way things worked out.
