White Throated Sparrow

Just a sparrow on my deck.

Not JUST a sparrow! It's a white throated sparrow that migrates into this area in October and goes back to it's breeding ground (Northers US into Southern Canada) about now. They have a cheery high-pitched song and prefers white proso millet as it's seed (as do most of the sparrow family). A nice bird and a good shot.

That's a great shot! Getting down on the ground at his level was a good idea. Makes the viewer think he is right there with the bird.

Thanks for the comments. Had it not been for this bird knocking himself out on my window, and coming out of it slowly, I never would have been able to get this shot.
