A Little Sparrow Love

Sparrows are often the Rodney Dangerfield’s of my birding world – they just don’t get any respect. However, fed up with the antics of fall warblers, it’s fun to see some of the sparrows sitting a bit still for identification and perhaps photos.

I came across this Lincoln’s Sparrow the other day and just wanted to share how lovely some of these little brown jobs can be:

    I love those little sparrows!! We only find Lincoln’s up in the Adirondack bog areas. They are so pretty. I especially like the White-throated and White Crowned Sparrows. The White Throat’s nest here and treat us to their early morning songs. The Song Sparrows and Chipping Sparrows, along with the look alike Tree Sparrow, are all beautiful, too. I feel so fortunate to have them all. Perhaps my all time favorite is the big rusty Fox Sparrow who visits us twice a year during migration. I look forward to their short but very special time with us. So, my observation is that their beauty is all in the eyes of the beholder. I definitely fall in that category 🙂 .

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos, Dick. Makes me want to run up to the Adirondacks and see a few Lincoln’s during this amazing warm and sunny weather streak we’re having.

    Take care and have fun!! Give Penny a pat or two from me. I hope she is feeling like her old self again :).
