Crisp facial markings make the White-throated Sparrow an attractive bird as well as a hopping, flying anatomy lesson. There’s the black eyestripe, the white crown and supercilium, the yellow lores, the white throat bordered by a black whisker, or malar stripe. They’re also a great entrée into the world of birdsong, with their pretty, wavering whistle of Oh-sweet-canada. These forest sparrows breed mostly across Canada, but they’re familiar winter birds across most of eastern and southern North America and California.

Birding Blog

My first blog post in a while – inspired by Sarah’s blog “Looking at His Creation“, hopefully I can capture a few birds this year to post here.  I’m already discovering that bird photography is extremely challenging!  I’ve created a page and a gallery site but not sure yet how I’m going to organize this through the year.

Here is my first offering…


Song Sparrow

Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.
