A handfull

Yes, Sparrows can be a handful, but when they come out in the open and give you good view that handful becomes a fistful.

We welcome back a Chipping Sparrow as they sit quietly as we pass by one a early morning walk. While this morning they were silent we typically are greeted by their song this time of year.

A  beautiful Lark Sparrow forages for the tiniest of sprouts springing forth from between this rocky soil.

Ushered by their beautiful wren-like song we were luck enough to  observe this Lincoln’s Sparrow enjoying the first rays of early morning light.

While out in the grasslands a Vesper Sparrow sang it’s lovely song.
