A couple of weeks ago, I did a collection type of post, featuring some of my shots of Blue Jays and Bluebirds. Last week, I decided to try to start a series of posts that show all the different kinds of feathered visitors to our yard. I quickly discovered it was going to be a much bigger project than I first thought, given how many bazillions of photos I've taken, and how few of them are properly labeled... 😜
Now I'm going to try grouping these in various ways, like summer birds versus winter birds, types of birds (sparrows, hawks), and coloring. Today I'm sharing some of the varieties of sparrows that dropped by my old Avian Eatery (I haven't been able to maintain feeders this winter, for a myriad of reasons). Oh, and these IDs were made thanks to the help of Cornell Lab of Ornithology and a local FB bird watching community.
Hope you enjoy!

While this isn't supposed to be a bird bath per se, try telling this Chipping Sparrow that!

Thank you for moving away from the branches, young Song Sparrow!
This young Song Sparrow certainly enjoyed posing for me!
While nearby Chipping Sparrows plotted to steal my camera so I'd leave them alone...LOL!
Thanks for stopping by!
