The sweet seed of success!

Cute little guy! I tried some sparrow shots not long ago but the little cutie was so busy flitting around that I couldn't capture a good crisp shot. Love yours!

Julia said...

What a good little bird to pose so nicely for you. Awesome photographs. I hope that he found lots of seeds.

Enjoy your Sunday.
Hugs,

isn't it something how they all look so cute, beautiful, when we take time to look at them closely.
not just another entity or living thing that is there. Your capturing these beautiful feathered species, and bovines, canines, equines, etc provides us with a stationary moment of appreciating. gracias for doing this mi amiga. have a wonderful day week, etc. ;-)

messymimi said...

Pretty little thing! It must be difficult to have to search for food that way, all day, every day.

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

So handsome! I enjoy learning to appreciate little brown birds like this. There are so many different kinds of brown!

Really beautiful photos of this little bird, Theresa. Everything has its beauty if we look close enough.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

This bird is not brightly coloured but still so pretty. In my area,when these birds arrive,spring has sprung,so they are a very welcome sight.

Lynne said...

Sweet little one . . . maybe the first to create camouflage!

An excellent series of close ups of this bird with the distinctive feather pattern. Whatever lens you're using is doing a superb job of getting the color and detail.

Sunday hugs from Port Canaveral,

Patty Woodland said...

Pretty little guy

Red said...

I looked hard to see if you identified this guy as a song sparrow. I finally found it in the title!!! How many months will it be before you send them my way?

Revrunner said...

A two-fer. Excellent! Not sure that would be enough for the Whistlers.

Maggid said...

So beautiful . . . in it's tiny way.
makin' me think of the song . .
and i hope it's true that they sing because they're happy . . .

Laura. M said...

Such cute little creatures. They are the most fun to watch on our teeny tree out the window while eating our breakfast - the children love them. Great shots too (as per usual.)

Susan said...

A really pretty bird, love the touches of blue :D)

Paul said...

Nice close in pictures, cute little gaffer!

Angela said...

Such a cute little birdie! We had one in the garage this morning. Must have came in last night or early morning before my husband left for church. I didn't go because he called and said the roads were too icy. Anyway, when I went to get a can of Pepsi in the garage I seen the little birdie and let him out. We keep our pop in a cabinet in the garage right beside the door. It is perfect in the winter as it keeps the pop cold. Sometimes we have slushy beverages if it is cold enough! lol

Even the sparrows have their gracefulness, their capacity to inspire wonder. Those were beautiful photographs, Teresa!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, Such a cutie! We seldom see many Sparrows here in my neighborhood. in fact, I have only seen about four Chipping Sparrows. Your Song Sparrow probably has a sweet voice! Have a wonderful coming week!

Jo's World said...

This is THEE bird for us people who love neutral colors. He is a beauty.

My little "won" sparrow finally got hung up next to my Mt. Fuji tapestry. Give him something to aspire to.

Cheers and hugs,

Jo

Catherine said...

Isn't it amazing how they can always find that one little seed?

I love to hear them sing. Our pair apparently got one of their own young last year, along with their cowbird babies.
