White Throated Sparrow

This White Throated Sparrow is a first for me. He never eats at the birdfeeder, but eats on the ground below the feeder.
I have been watching this bird all month, taken several photos.
But none had been as good to identify him by as these that I took yesterday.
I was sitting in my 'blind' wondering why I was sitting there when this bird came into my view. Then I knew why I was sitting there. Another bird for my lifer list.
The backyard at Rockwood has been very good for bird lifer list.

Great catch! You did a great job with your photos! Congrats!! These little guys are hard to catch in the lens, as they jump and scratch the ground for food..always moving!!

so now you know why you were sitting there...waiting..I just love those types of surprises!!

Cute little Sparrow. I haven't seen him up this way... Think he may stop by for a visit???? I hope so.

Love the male bluebirds you put on your Photography by Leedra page.
Hugs,
Betsy

When I started seeing this bird on different blogs I did not even realise it was a bird in our area.

Betsy -so you need to keep an eye out for it. I have only seen one so far.

I thought I was nuts for a minute...I thought I had visited your blog yesterday and then seen these three posts and took me a sec to realize they were all made today...they are wonderful...I am a bit partial to the bluebirds cause my mom always had a couple that nested in her back yard.

Hi Leedra,

I have to tell you that you take the best photos of birds! I have been looking through your bird photos and they are all so beautiful!

I have never seen one of these birds before either. It is very beautiful yet different.
