It was a cloudy mid-morning when we ran across this Clay-Coloerd Sparrow singing away. Their song is an interesting one and one that sounds quite like an insect to me. Clay Colored Sparrows are birds of shrubby terrain and that is exactly where we found this one. They are numerous within their range in the northern prairies of North America yet their numbers seem to be declining due to habitat loss.

Sweet image…singing his heart out!
Fantastic “action” image of this little guy, Mike. Your images are well composed and crisp. A delight to view.
Ah! This is the little fellow who loves to bathe in my hoya plant after the sprinkling. So sweet!
