Smile for the Camera

Last fall I came across dozens of LeConte's Sparrows just like the one pictured above. Unlike most other sparrows they would actually sit within a few feet of me as I took pictures, probably thinking that they were well camouflaged in the grass and that I couldn't see them. Maybe one day I will find a Savannah Sparrow that is just as cooperative. This brave little LeConte's certainly wasn't camera shy!

Nice capture Tucker. Smart bird keeping so still in its camouflaged
'coat'.

Still haven't seen one.

...lovely shot of the LeConte's! I hope you find a friendly Savannah Sparrow. I saw several this summer, but they were definitely not interested in being photographed!

Great photo - and good bird. You've got all the info for a positive ID. They're are accidental in my neighborhood.
