My favorite subject of course - I just cant resist it. I doctored it a little bit.... Yesterday a visit to the dentist and a root canal solved my week long migraine - I could not touch my ear or over the top of my eye without pain! Today - I am a new girl!!! Pain free....


Hope no one minds me indulging in my favorite uploads - these boidies always do well in the groups - I like to get lots of views - I am 8000 views short of half a million!!!


Tags, invites, comments, notes, all welcome! No flickriver stuff though, I will delete it!

Thank you very much for your visits, comments, and faves, Very much appreciated! Have a wonderful day

Sparrow searching for food in the snow.

On the right hand sparrow there were a couple of other sparrows, as per usual - that is why the tail ends up in the bokeh!! I loved the pose of these 2 and I thought they turned out sharp and feisty. Hope you like them too.

As always a little bit short on time but I wanted all to know that along with choulabags I have started a new group called 'blink again' (see link below) - if you want to support us we would be most happy to have you in our group. I think we are pretty good at keeping things flowing in mywinners so I hope that our new group will also keep moving too. If you dont want to be bothered with invites - then please help me out by writing under your comments 'no invites' I will respect this and give some tasty comments instead!


Big thank you for your visits and support, tags, invites notes - everything welcome

Another image from Carmargue, this was also in the nature park. We sat in the restaurant which was full of sparrow hutches and sparrows all around. I thought this was just delightful. On my way to catch up, thank you so much for visiting my photostream, I will try my best to return the kind favs and comments.

Hubby built me a little hide in the garden shed, I can now photograph to my hearts content, this captured yesterday the lighting was perfect. You should have seen the sparrow jump when the other one landed next to him. Lol, off to catch up.

Definitely last shot of this guy slightly different pose added a tonal b/g to blend the green a bit more.

Had this unknown little visitor arrive and check out the food on the ground. So, the question arises as to who are you. I feel like I am in the middle of a CSI investigation where they try to identify the perpetrator. Luckily, this little guy was kind enough to do a sitting for an ID photo (where else does that happen?). Prior to Don's solution below, my guess was a Lincoln’s sparrow, something that I am completely unfamiliar with. Thanks to all of you who participated in the survey.

Who Are You – The Who


Mystery Solved

Don Delaney has come up with the solution and identifies it as a juvenile chipping sparrow. Thank you Don for being the ultimate Bird CI.


Further description:

no yellow markings other than the gape and tip of lower mandrible

no dark spot on the chest

no grey on the bird just different shades of tan

Sparrows are a family of small passerine birds, Passeridae.

Java Sparrow, Padda oryzivora, Ciak Jawa

The Java sparrow is a very gregarious bird which feeds mainly on grain and other seeds. It frequents open grassland and cultivation, and was formerly a pest in rice fields, hence its scientific name. This species is a resident breeding bird in SouthEast Asia. It is a popular cage bird, and has been introduced in a large number of other countries, all over the world.

These sparrows aren't considered rare down here this time of the year, but I've never had much luck with them until today. This guy was working the bramble in a ditch, so I was on my knees peeking through the long grasses. This accounts for the blur and low contrast on the perch and the bottom of the subject. Personally, I kind of like the natural effect but it's a tricky thing to get right.

White-crowned Sparrows appear each winter over much of North America to grace our gardens and favorite trails (they live in parts of the West year-round). The smart black-and-white head, pale beak, and crisp gray breast combine for a dashing look – and make it one of the surest sparrow identifications in North America. Watch for flocks of these sparrows scurrying through brushy borders and overgrown fields, or coax them into the open with backyard feeders. As spring approaches, listen out for this bird’s thin, sweet whistle.

I'm not sure what type of sparrow this is seen at Pentire Head near Newquay Cornwall. July 2017

Song Sparrows can be found throughout most of North America, but the birds of different areas can look quite different. The Song Sparrows who inhabit the Pacific Northwest like the one shown are dark and heavily streaked, while the Sparrows of Alaska's Aleutian Islands chain are even darker, as well as being twice as large. The Song Sparrows of the Desert Southwest are pale.

Some Scientists believe the Song Sparrows of the wet coastal areas like the one shown, have a darker plumage as a defense against feather mites and other decay agents that thrive in humd climate. The darker plumage contains more of the pigment called melanin, which makes feathers tougher and harder to degrade than lighter, unpigmented feathers.

The sparrow project is an attempt to improve my bird story telling along with honing eye hand/AF coordination skills using a common subject readily available. The subjects must be in motion as a prerequisite since shooting ducks in a barrel is just no sport at all.


I was spurred into the project due to my complete dissatisfaction of prior attempts while on a trip to Tanzania. Learning the delicate balance between shutter speed, proper long lens techniques, iso settings and AF modes is a challenge for something just slightly slower than a speeding bullet.


This will be ongoing to support my next African adventure later this year.

Who will love a little Sparrow.....

Not I said the oak tree.....:(

Savannah Sparrow's are fairly common around Barrow although they can be tougher to get a picture of due to there small size and there hunkering abilities within the tundra grasses.

However they do like to get up and sing but there is not allot of aesthetically pleasing higher perches so I elected to try to get this guy on the Tundra.

Enjoying the late afternoon sun.

Don't you think this bird should be named "yellow browed" sparrow? :grinning:....Thank you very much for viewing my photo ! I truly appreciate any faves, comments and awards! :bird:

This Little sparrow looked at me over his shoulder while sitting on a little tree in front of me. Spring hasn't began at that moment so I could see him well.


This white crowned sparrow enjoys a snack - he was playing with his food moments before, then set it down to really savor it!

I look forward to new meetings!

For about a week several White-crowned Sparrows were hanging around my yard singing away each morning. It's too bad they don't hang around throughout the summer because they have an especially pretty song.
