Quick update!

American Tree Sparrow

Lately it's been cloudy and rainy, or just drearily cloudy. I had the day off work on Tuesday and was fortunate to have sunny skies for photography. I didn't spot the Northern Shrike that's been frequenting the prairie, but there were a lot of American Tree Sparrows.

There are around a half dozen White-crowned Sparrows lingering at the prairie.
