Little Sparrow



I think this is a white-throated sparrow (Zonotrichia albicollis). He likes to visit our feeder. 


The female does not have the bright yellow markings so this must be a male.

  1. One of the few things I miss after moving to an apartment is the bird-feeder that used to be just outside my window.

  2. I think your sparrow is waiting for you to feed it. Very cute.

  3. So sweet:) In my northern VA yard, they are one of the few birds I can never get a clear photo of...because they are always feeding on the ground. And they are so fast--it's hard to capture them w/the camera. Those are great shots:)

  4. Those little yellow "eyebrows" make me laugh. Cute pictures!

  5. It looks as if the sparrow in the first photo is angry at you about something. All of the photos are great though.

  6. Pretty sure you are right about it being a white throated. We get these in our garden pretty regularly. I think they are very handsome!

  7. We certainly do have the same kind of shots! :)
    I love watching them. I only seem to have one of these little guys. Either that or only one comes at a time.
