    One usually sees these birds in open grassy fields, and they won't go onto feeders that I've seen. This one is coming to the yard daily, though, mooching around under the feeders for leftovers. I have taken the feeders down in order to prevent disease spread, so he may move on. Too bad, it's a...

    Although they are among the most common sparrows in North America, I rarely get them coming into my yard. This fellow was hopping and foraging around the yard late yesterday afternoon.

    Most of these were feeding on the ground in a mowed field, but there was also activity near a small wetland (pictured). They had good reason to stay concealed because there were Cooper's Hawks patrolling the area. When these birds are on the ground or in the grasses, they are very hard to see.

    The Savannah Sparrow decided to fly up to get a better look at me. After a short perusal he lost interest and dropped back to the lawn to forage. Unfortunately it was a dark, drizzly day and the light really sucked. Liked the pose though, and the unusual perch for this mostly ground loving...
