A Savannah Sparrow looking a bit like an extension of the thorny shrub upon which they had perched.
With talons that could be mistaken for the barbs of the fence itself a sparrow (Vesper?) eyes their next meal hidden somewhere in the green green grass beyond the fence.
A lichen covered post seemed a suitable perch for this sparrow. Shades of brown, gray and orange all similar yet all distinct.
Yes, Sparrows can be a handful, but when they come out in the open and give you good view that handful becomes a fistful.
A beautiful Lark Sparrow forages for the tiniest of sprouts springing forth from between this rocky soil.
Just a splash of yellow and quick glance back as a Savanah Sparrow sits quietly along a barbed wire fence was enough to make our day.
