This is from last Saturday. I think it's a sparrow. This little bird was quite cooperative. It was eyeing me up and was nice enough to pose without vamoosing too quickly. Cropped, level adjustment and resized..........cheers......thekman.

Nice image, 'kman! And I see that the blackberries are starting to leaf out up you direction...

This one fooled me at first because when I looked at the bird it looked almost as large as a robin to me. Then I realized that it must be a Fox Sparrow but it didn't look like the Fox Sparrows I am used to seeing where I live. A quick look in Sibley's field guide convinced me that you got a shot of the Sooty subspecies of Fox Sparrow that occurs up in your area.

Thanks Geoff. I wasn't real sure what species he was. There are so many that look similar up here. He wasn't singing, but looked like he wanted to. Lol. Maybe new talent and not too confident.....thekman.
