Another for my Bird on Wire series. I’m getting better at identifying the sparrows.
For the uninitiated, there are a lot of types of sparrows out there. If you think a sparrow is a sparrow is a sparrow, you are wrong. In fact there are so many types of sparrows, that I can’t figure out which one this is even though I’m consulting two different bird books.
A friend commented that it’s a female House Sparrow. I think it is!
Love the barbed wire on this shot. It might be cooler than the bird.
Amazing what you can see if you sit near an old water trough for awhile and watch. I’m thinking I may need to start a Birds On Wires series.
Note to self: I’m guessing a Juvenile Lincoln’s Sparrow speaking to Western Bluebird.
