Wasn't able to get too close to these little ones and it was windy and they were very active. Can someone make a positive id on the sparrows? I'm pretty sure they are of a swamp and song sparrows.

3. Swamp Sparrow. This little birds fly low into grass like little kamakazis!! But, this one gave me a pose for a few seconds.

Thanx all!!!!

Kem, 700mm f/5.6 = 500mm f/4 & 2.4X TC

Jake, the 500mm is well worth it!!! All these shots were hand held. So, it works well on a tripod and is light enough for hand holding too. To me. the ultimate wildlife lens.
