A Little Lincoln's

I photographed this little guy last year.  I am more than ready for spring!  C'mon, spring!!

We had Lincoln's Sparrows early last year, but overall, didn't have a lot of birdy action in the yard.  Blame the early, warm spring, they must not have needed us!!

But I love Lincoln's Sparrows!  I always call them "Little Lincolns".  Makes no sense whatsoever.  I hope that wasn't a requirement!

What pluck!  The House Sparrow does not seem equally impressed...  Kudos for effort, kid!

Check it out!

Well, I don't have any new photos to share, but am thinking I've been neglecting this blog for too long!!

So check this out: awesome photos of a Tawny Frogmouth, including two pictures of its gape! I don't normally like seeing flash photos, but am thinking these are different, that the bird must have been habituated to people to have been foraging poolside.

Awesome pictures!
