World Bird Wednesday: Savannah Sparrow

It's been a year since I have visited the Katy Prairie, but I'm hoping to get out there one Saturday morning before the kids' winter basketball season starts up in mid-January. One of the treats from last winter's visit to the area was this little guy:

Savannah Sparrow - 1/20/2009
Savannah Sparrow (Passerculus sandwichensis)


I pretty much missed fall migration this year, but I am going to try to start posting pics of some of the great birds I saw and never got to blog about from last spring's migration and from the little bit of birding I did over the summer. In the meantime, I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

Great detail, setting, and pose. The Savannah Sparrow is new to me and I love it's Latin name! ;-)WBW

You really get a sense of how tiny he is sitting on the barbwire fence. Great shot!
