A Lovely Sparrow!



I returned to the prairie parcel of Pheasant Branch this morning to see if the Harris's Sparrow had spent the night at the conservancy. Indeed, it was still present in the same patch of dense habitat, hanging out with the other zonotrichia sparrows. The bird was a little more accommodating for photography compared to yesterday, but it wouldn't perch in the open without a few obstructing branches. I shifted my position in order to frame it through a little opening for this shot. What an incredibly handsome bird!
