Last weekend these two white-crowned sparrows were very willing to be photographed. One must have been newly fledged because he was very concerned about the location of the other one and followed her everywhere, chirping constantly. I like this photo even though I couldn't get both birds in focus. The out-of-focus sparrow on the left is the baby.
This bird was so much fun to photograph! He flew up and down, on a variety of plants. I won't bore you with all the variations. I took over 100 pictures of these guys with my new 1 gig memory card. Here, she's very puffy!
This was my favorite picture. Sparrow in profile:
I love this action shot. The sparrow on the left was in the process of landing.
In this one, I photographed both white-crowned sparrows and a song sparrow! Song sparrows are my favorite sparrow because they have the most beautiful songs. I could listen to them all day.
This host of house sparrows likes to hang out near my bird feeder, waiting for me to fill it. They are all female house sparrows. Male sparrows are distinguished by their black bib. I recycle Audrey and Conner's bird seed by giving it to the local birds, who are much less picky about the food. They're happy to eat pellets.
