Field Sparrow

 Field Sparrow (Spizella pusilla)

This elusive little guy finally showed up yesterday where I could get a good photo of him/her. I had to stand very quiet for a long time but eventually he came back to this feeder to check out the goodies there

Miraculous. I grab the camera and go for a walk!

Looks we'll fed! Patience with animals is pretty important.

A sweet, little bird!

Great pix. Rarely see one up close, but I hear them all summer. Isn't it the one whose call sounds like a Ping pong ball dropping?

Ela said...

I love these dainty little birds! So sweet, and you have gotten some great shots!

Wonderful shots. Can't really decide which one I like better. Each one has something going for them. The first one is nicely framed and the second one really, really cute :)

several years ago i went out birding with my friend Diane. she kept telling me to make like a tree... i have no patience with waiting... and with birds that is a requirement...

Sparrows don't get enough exposure on blogs. Nice you featured him.

Lowell said...

I don't think I've ever seen any kind of sparrow that close up (a living one, that is.) Beautiful photos!

Sweet bird and great shots. We have mostly Song and Fox at our feeders now. I have a hard time telling some of them apart. MB

Stuart said...

Love those sparrows... and your shots!

Linda W. said...

Wonderful photos of this cute little bird. We've had snow the past two days, so there's been lots of feathered friends visiting our bird feeders.

Cute little bird!

RedPat said...

Sweet!

Vagabonde said...

We get many of these birds on our bird feeders but I can never get as close you did. Your picture is so clear - I loved it.

I read somewhere that sparrows -of all birds- were kind of at risk in Europe. I love them, they are so cute so I've really enjoyed these pics!

John "By Stargoose And Hanglands" said...

Neat little chap! And no relation to our sparrows, I believe. The weather here has been too mild to attract anything unusual to the feeders.

Rose said...

And s/he is such a darling!
