Babes In The Wood

Yesterday was a great day here and I took advantage..I took so many photos of different birds I could hardly decide which one to post..I like this one..I'm kind of tired of just a bird sitting on a branch lol ;) so I thought this worked out ok. Everywhere I looked yesterday I spotted these guys..I think it's juvie?

 

"The White-throated Sparrow comes in two color forms: white-crowned and tan-crowned. The two forms are genetically determined, and they persist because individuals almost always mate with a bird of the opposite morph. Males of both color types prefer females with white stripes, but both kinds of females prefer tan-striped males. White-striped birds are more aggressive than tan-striped ones, and white-striped females may be able to outcompete their tan-striped sisters for tan-striped males."

 

Have a great day everyone. I will catch up with everyone later on today ;) Thank you for your visits!
