hello, I’m an American Song Sparrow

Yesterday, as I was trying to get some decent pictures of those mergansers, with their interesting hair-do, I heard bird song. This time of year, you don’t hear too much of that here, so … I started to look around. Took me quite some time before I spotted this little guy… Everything is so brownish-gray now, so he ‘melted in’ with all the branches. Marvellous, really, how such a little body can produce that song!

  1. Hi,
    I can understand how he was so hard to spot, he just blends in so well, good eyesight on your part, and a nice photo. 😀

  2. we have tons of sparrows here. And there are several different sparrows that we have here. I have identified several idfferent ones, some in summer, some in winter. Sweet little birds. We have a sparrow that roosts under our carport. Odd place but her must like it here.

    1. They are such cute little birds, but I’m hopeless in identifying them. I’m never sure whether it’s a song sparrow or a tree sparrow — I must look them up each time 🙂

      Back home, the tree sparrow would be ‘gråsparv’, even though it’s brown 🙂

      1. In the winter we have white crowned sparrows here. Not many so special to see them. We also have Harris sparrows. They are my fave. They look like some took a mini-spray paint and spritzed black paint in the middle of their faces. Both of these are a bit larger than house sparrows.
